Only Shopping Matters

RLM made this poster when, in 2014, local authorities arrested and charged 11 Black Lives Matter organizers.  All had taken part in a massive demonstration against police killings at the Mall of America, one of the United States’ largest centers of retail capitalism, a few miles away from our studio.  Mall management and Bloomington, MN police demanded (unsuccessfully) that the organizers also pay the cost of breaking up the rally with riot squads.  After a nationwide outcry, embarrassed prosecutors eventually dropped all the trumped up charges.

The poster shows police handcuffing a young Black Lives Matter activist gagged by the Mall of America logo.
