In September 9, 1971 1,281 prisoners at the Attica Correctional Facility in New York revolted against abuse and took 43 guards prisoner. Four days later the state police and corrections officers assaulted the prison in a six minute hail of gunfire. In that short space of time 29 prisoners and ten guards were killed, almost all by the assaulting officers. Attica came to symbolize for most of America the brutal and racist conditions in prisons. Using artwork with Native American themes and with a Germanic spelling of Attica, this poster links all people with the struggle at
Attica and the repression with fascism.
