Stopnuclear.net is an online poster gallery of anti-nuclear posters, founded by prominent graphic designer Yuji Sato (aka U.G. Sato). Whether he’s advocating for world peace or against nuclear power, Sato’s work has always been politically motivated. In 1995, Sato invited his graphic designer colleagues to send him posters by fax to protest french nuclear tests that were being conducted uncomfortably close to Japan. The outpour of responses resulted in a street demonstration in Paris.
Following the same playbook, Sato went through his rolodex of graphic designers, inviting everyone who felt like it to submit posters to his website. In October of last year a peaceful street protest was held as demonstrators marched with their posters.
Here are a selection of posters from the website. Click images to enlarge.
