A public mural in the North Lawndale neighborhood in Chicago, one of the many communities threatened by a proposal that would close up to 50 community schools in the city. Depicting a long history of struggle including the Black Panthers, North Lawndale is continuing this history by fighting back against the school closings.

Esta obra de Pablo Picasso mostra um grupo de militares estadunidenses preparados para massacrar um grupo de mulheres e crianças na Coréia “do Norte”, uma obra que denuncia os crimes e o abuso do poder imperialista dos Estados Unidos após a II Guerra Mundial. A obra inspira-se nos “fuzilamentos de 3 de Maio”, pintado por Goya em 1814 e serviu como desenho ou cartaz de propaganda para o Partido Comunista Francês, do qual Pablo Picasso era militante.
