Fuck the Draft by Kiyoshi Kuromiya (1968) is up for auction.

One of the most iconic protest posters ever created is being offered at Heritage Auctions.

In 1968 Japanese-American activist Kiyoshi Kuromiya distributed the poster via mail order, with suggestions to mail a copy to mothers and the White House. Eventually, the FBI arrested Kuromiya for using the US postal service to distribute 'lewd and indecent materials.

Kiyoshi Kuromiya's life as a committed civil rights and anti-war activist is worth a read.
