Pasaran" (They Shall not Pass)
Mark Vallen 1984
Offset poster 17" x 21" inches - $10.00
what Vallen said about his artwork:
created this silkscreen street poster when the people of
Nicaragua came under military attack from right-wing mercenaries
trained, armed, and funded by the Reagan administration.
slogan They shall not Pass became a popular expression
throughout Nicaragua and illustrated the people's determination
to resist foreign domination.
poster proved so popular that I self published it as an
offset poster. Thousands of these posters were distributed
at antiwar demonstrations in Los Angeles, and a network
was set up to assure their distribution across the western
hemisphere and beyond.
the slogan of No Pasaran is still used as an expression
of solidarity against those who would divide and crush the
