She opposed the military dictatorship, and later supported workers' struggles and the burgeoning LGBT+ movement in the 1980s.</span></p> <p><span data-mce-fragment="1">Taking inspiration from her unfinished poetical autobiography and in particular from the poem Civil War, the design reflects a childhood memory of Katerina. The part of the poem that the design is based on goes as the following:</span></p> <blockquote> <p><em data-mce-fragment="1">'I saw through the glass a bullet hitting my left hand palm, blood and the trash breathing. My mother was in the kitchen and my father I don’t even know where, I open the door and I go to the trash. And there I saw, and I don’t give a dime if you don’t believe me, the most beautiful boy I had seen in my life. He was covered there, holding a machine gun, he had a short blond beard and long blond hair. His eyes…I don’t know to tell their colour. He looked like or was the Christ. “Go little girl, go”, he told me, “away from here. They will kill me”. I took a deep breath to run fast.'</em></p> </blockquote> <p><span data-mce-fragment="1">The poem concludes: </span><em data-mce-fragment="1">'The first man and the last I ever loved was an urban guerrilla.'</em></p> <p><span data-mce-fragment="1">The design was realised by Berlin based Italian illustrator </span><a aria-describedby="a11y-new-window-external-message" data-mce-fragment="1" data-mce-href="https://www.instagram.com/annapiera_illustration/" href="https://www.instagram.com/annapiera_illustration/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Anna Piera Di Silvestre</a><span data-mce-fragment="1">.</span></p> <p>This t-shirt is available strictly limited edition for<strong> this month only</strong>.

Each shirt is strictly limited edition and made from 100 percent organic cotton: it will be available for pre-order for one month only and, afterwards, will be sewed and printed in the exact amount that were ordered that particular month!<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The t-shirts of the month are literally shirts to make working class history. They do so in these ways:</em></p> <ul> <li><em>They help fund our work promoting history from below across the various channels of Working Class History.</em></li> <li><em>They help to sustain Humana Nova, a worker-owned textiles co-op in Croatia.</em></li> <li><em>Through dna merch, part of the income generated will be used to support militant grassroots labour unions in South Asia.</em></li> <li><em>They bring exposure and income to designers and artists with underprivileged and underrepresented backgrounds.</em></li> </ul> <p>To order your shirt(s) please follow <a href="https://shop.workingclasshistory.com/collections/t-shirt-of-the-month" moz-do-not-send="true" target="_blank" rel="noopener">this link</a> or click on the shirt and make sure to key in the discount code <strong>GEO2022</strong>.</p> <img alt="Humana Nova Worker-Owners and Working Class History" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="42a7285c-3818-43d7-bf70-32cc0e79349d" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/Humana-Nova-Coop-We-are-WCH.jpg" class="align-center" width="1866" height="1125" loading="lazy" /> <p> </p> <p><strong>PS: You can pay with any debit or credit card and don’t need a Pay Pal account.
