Farmworkers Strike to Save Their Union
In this graphic work Zermeño uses political iconography to inspire workers to fight for better pay and working conditions. The central portrait depicts a couple of Chicano or Mexican descent looking out as protestors holding flags march across the horizon below. The symbol at the top of the poster is an eagle, the logo of the United Farm Workers Union. The poster, stylistically reminiscent of the political graphics of the Russian Revolution and the Chinese Cultural Revolution, is a call to action.
