War Resisters League (artist: Peg Averill)
Don't Pay!

Another poster from the WRL and Peg Averill. This one is not in Averill's usual drawn style, but instead a money/airplane montage. The poster is in support of war tax resistance, with a oddly humanitarian quote from Eisenhower on it: "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed..."

Unlike most of the WRL posters, this one does not list a print shop or bear a union bug. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe this poster is from the early 1980s.
