New No's is a poem by Badlands Unlimited written after the election of Donald J. Trump and acts as a declaration against the drift of American society toward what is most un-American.

Designed by Paul Chan and Badlands, this poster is 24” X 36” (60.9cm X 91.5cm). The minimal and stark aesthetic beautifully reminds us of what is worth keeping in mind as we prepare for four years of Trump Nero as president.

Part of the proceeds from sales will go towards Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

We keep getting calls and emails at the office, telling us it’s “complicated.” They say we don’t “understand them.” Be “reasonable” they say. The more ambitious ones go on to explain that while there were definitely voters who acted on racist, misogynist, and xenophobic instincts, most voted simply out of the sense that their economic hardships were being ignored.

But we know it’s not complicated. It’s pretty simple, actually. That’s why we wrote this the weekend after the election.
