An historic poster honoring Nelson Mandela in the 23rd year of his incarceration by the Apartheid government of South Africa is now on display in the San José Peace and Justice Center. The poster was printed in Hindi in 1985 by the solidarity organization Contemporary Third World in New Delhi, India.
Facing an escalating revolutionary situation across South Africa, in February 1985 President Peter Botha offered Mandela release from prison on condition that he "unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon." Mandela refused. The poster was issued specifically in solidarity with Mandela's historic decision.
