    Description

    1966 Psychedelic Campaign Poster - Jerry Rubin for Berkeley Mayor Jerry Rubin was a 1960s political activist who, with fellow radicals Abbie Hoffman and Paul Krassner, formed the Youth International Party (or the Yippies) to disrupt the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. This colorful, psychedelic-style cardstock campaign poster advertises Rubin's platform of "Peace in Vietnam / End Poverty / Stop Police Harassment / 18 Year Old Vote / Legalize Marijuana / Rent Control / Black Power / Student Power / Fight Racism / Tax the Rich / Plant Trees & Flowers." The "Tax the Rich" phrase seems particularly ironic as Rubin, in the 1980s, became a Wall Street marketing analyst and venture capitalist, changing his theme from "Money is violence" to "Money is Power." Excellent condition, 13.5" x 19" in size, great period graphics. By the way, he didn't win the election but did get twenty percent of the vote!
