This poster was made in Los Angeles, by Shock Battalion (Mark Vallen and Charlene Hassencahl), copying a Nicaraguan poster photographed by Carol Wells in 1983 in a Managua, Nicaragua religious center, but not collected. Mark changed the golden bullets to silver bullets/bombs because he felt that the gold looked too much like McDonald's Golden Arches.
