Shepard Fairey, Pay Up Or Shut Up, 2015
We must fight the greed of the powerful and restore the basic fairness of our society and our democracy. The most crucial step in fighting against political corruption and forcing politicians to get back to creating the greatest good for the greatest number of people is to reform our current campaign finance structure. This piece is specifically making fun of the idea pushed by Citizens United that money is speech, but following that logic that means that the only speech listened to is the speech with big money behind it. Proceeds from the “Pay Up or Shut Up” print will go to two organizations who are fighting for campaign finance reform, they are Rootstrikers.org and Represent.US. Represent.US created this excellent video depicting the problem of money in politics. This issue effects all of us, including YOU! Inform yourself. Thank you as always for caring.
This Shepard Fairey print will be released Tuesday May 19, 2015 at a random time between 10am and 11am PST at Obey
