Padro Albizu Campos 1890-1965
Type of Work
Poster commemorating October 30, 1950, the date on which an armed uprising took place in Puerto Rico by the Nationalist Party. In Jayuya, the insurgents manage to take over the town for three days and proclaim the Republic of Puerto Rico. On a red background, the black profile of the teacher Don Pedro Albizu Campos (1890-1965) is presented with his arm raised, on which a fight between insurgents and the police, fire and an airplane can be observed. This image shrinks and is repeated, in the background, with an image of the attack on Congress, in Washington DC, in 1954. In the third plane, the face with only the head of Don Pedro behind bars is repeated. In the upper right corner there is a quote from the teacher who reads: To take away our country, first they have to take our lives. The Taller Alacrán logo is included on the lower right edge.
