A drawing of "La Muerte" covering a cadaver superimposed on a photosilkscreened image of cholos at a funeral. Text reads, "End Barrio Warfare!/ "...If we must shed our blood on this earth, let it be for the betterment of our RAZA and not for our SELF-DESTRUCTION!!"/ Edúcate Raza!/ Por Amor a Nuestras Madres/ For Information Contact your Nearest MECHA". The M.E.Ch.A. symbol (an eagle with a club in one hand and a stick of dynamite in the other) appears in the lower right corner.
