Silence is Violence Screenprint Patch Solidarity


Rise up. Unite. Take a Stand. The time is now. Because if you don’t hold the light to injustice… who will?
Reminds me of the saying “First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Of course in the modern context…. substitute Indigenous, Black, Queer…

This series of Protest Patches is in relation to the ongoing inequality and privilege built into the crapitalist system of aggression, pollution and greed. If silence is violence, then let’s raise our voices and stand in solidarity for Racial Justice, Equality, the Environment and our children’s futures.

€1 per patch will be donated to charities including Ende Gelände, SEEBRÜCKE (Sea Bridge), Himmelbeet community garden, and some Black led charities on the grounds in the USA (

Hand printed using environmentally friendly water based textile color onto stable off-white or black cotton.

The print size can be seen in the photo on the lined cutting board (the blue lines grid is in cm). The fabric is approximately 1cm bigger in all directions.

This patch can be washed up to 30 degrees, but a cold wash is best for everyone.

Every print is done by hand, so small beautiful variations may occur.

Hand printed in Berlin with water based colors (free from Phthalat, Formaldehyd, PVC and APEO).
