Eric Drooker: General Strike!

Just about 2 weeks ago, Richard Solomon Representatives received a phone call from the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) for their artist, Eric Drooker, to design and illustrate the poster for the General Strike of 2011. Without going into the issues in depth, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has proposed a bill, which will, if passed, strip Unions of the right to negotiate contracts collectively for their members. It could have devastating effects for all public service employees in Wisconsin. Drooker enthusiastically accepted the project pro bono and now his image is being displayed on the I.W.W. website internationally in 3 languages as well as being used by protesters all over the U.S (and perhaps the world?).
