This poster protests the 2000 Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Los Angeles by spoofing the classic 1951 anti-war science fiction film, “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” The original film was made during the Cold War, and starred an alien (Klaatu) with his mighty robot (Gort). Gort is shown carrying a screaming scantily dressed woman a la King Kong, whose hand can be seen holding the world.
