U.S. Out of Cuba!

While Martha Hubert is, for the most part, taking a vacation from painting in order to oppose the war in Iraq, her picket signs are superior -- great quotations, weatherproofed signs, even tape on the handles to prevent splinters -- and her large banners are great. This new one was photographed by Jes Richardson of Gandhi Peace Brigade. He and his wife Leslie are doing lectures cross country about their time spent in Iran, and I forgot to email him a request for a larger copy of his photo before they left. I like Martha's banner, but I think it should be accompanied by a picket sign saying, "U.S. Out of Cuba!"...
