Huge credit is due to Alex Hoekstra for both the graphic design and for refining the message.
A month or so ago I conceived — no doubt, not originally — the idea of incorporating a revolutionary anarchist slogan into the traditional logo for recycling. I posted something to my Facebook wall calling for a logo design, and Alex had this put together in almost no time. Bravo, Alex! So, whether you see this plastered all up and down the overpasses on America’s Interstate 95 or spray-painted on half the train cars on the Trans-Siberian Railroad, you’ll know where it came from.
Resist! Resist what? Whatever evil there is in your situation and that of those around you. Could be the state, abusive parents, tyrannical schoolteachers, a smarmy boss, the jealous priesthood of whatever religion got jammed down your throat, stupid laws, uncaring “friends”, racism, sexism, whatever. Push back!
Rebel! Against same.
Reclaim! Reclaim what? Whatever has been taken from you and those around you. Could be your freedom, your identity, your learning, your labor, your mind, your property, your integrity, your emotions, your destiny, your life, whatever. Don’t ask for permission, don’t wait for critical mass, just take it!
