“In such ugly times, the only true protest is beauty.” ―Phil Ochs


When a Peacemaker was a lawman’s six-shooter, trigger fingers made peace signs.

“And you must learn to protect yourself with the pen, and not the gun.”

Josephine Baker

When the arm of the law gets heavy-handed, guitar pickers finger their axes.

“Language is a weapon of politicians, but language is a weapon in much of human affairs.”

Noam Chomsky

When the Jim Crow wing of legal eagles crap like raptors on human rights, finger painters flip them the bird.

“What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?”

Aldous Huxley

When sworn oaths and swear words fail to serve and protect, peacemakers draw their weapon.

“Poetry seems to be the only weapon able to beat language, using language’s own means.”

Joseph Brodsky
