The back of the shirt represents a Maya warrior wearing a jaguar helmet. For the Maya, the jaguar represented power, ferocity and valour. The Maya word <em>muuk’</em> means <em>fuerza</em> in Spanish respectively – strength or force in English. The front of the shirt features a corn in the shape of an arrow referring to famous Maya leader Nachán Can. It is said that when Spanish invaders sent a messenger to get tribute from Nachán Can, he sent back a message saying that the only tribute he would give to the Spanish would be turkeys in the shapes of spears and corn in the shape of arrows. The arrow also features the year of the battle against Hernandez de Cordova, who set out from Cuba to Mexico in February 1517 in order to find Indigenous peoples to enslave. But he was defeated by Maya fighters and forced to retreat, soon dying from his wounds. </span></p> <p><span data-mce-fragment="1">This t-shirt is available strictly limited edition for <strong>this month only</strong></span>.<span data-mce-fragment="1"> Be sure to preorder yours by February 28 as all t-shirts will be sewn and printed together. </span></p> <img alt="" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="3557d0de-db10-4b60-90f0-51733c9c1b5e" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/tshirt-of-the-month-2-22.png" class="align-center" width="759" height="703" loading="lazy" /> <p> </p> <p><strong>This is how the initiators of the T-Shirt of the Month project describe it with their own words:</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><em>The ‘T-Shirt of the Month’ project is a collaboration between Working Class History, an educational grassroots project that tells history from below through various formats and channels, and dna merch, a social enterprise based in Berlin and ally of the transnational workers’ network ExChains.<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The ‘T-Shirt of the Month’ project follows the idea of ‘prosumption’, a more sustainable and collective approach to production and consumption. dna merch, together with a global network of artists, creates exclusive shirt designs, inspired by events and stories from the Working Class History archive. 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.
