Artist's statement on this artwork originally published on the @laborcamp Instagram account:

Growing up in Poland decades ago, I recall us being forced to march in May 1st parades staged as a performance of support for the oppressive regime. Today, in America, people are being forced to work in conditions threatening their lives. Capitalism or communism: oppression does not have a systemic designation. Police beat insubordinates everywhere with the same brutality.
