These greeting cards were made by indigenous political prisoner Oso Blanco and the proceeds go to the Children’s Art Project (benefiting youth in Chiapas, Mexico). Get it from independent bookstore and our friends at Burning Books and its even better.
Imprisoned by the US government for expropriating from banks to fund the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), Oso Blanco has been using art to continue his mission. These first four designs were all painted by Oso Blanco after he had been captured in 1999. Proceeds from the sale of these greeting cards will benefit children in the autonomous Zapatista zone of Chiapas, Mexico, and on reservations here on Turtle Island.
