Last Friday, US President Donald Trump signed a contentious executive order banning visa entry from seven predominantly Muslim countries – Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Somalia and Yemen.
Many have criticised the move, including leaders such as Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel. The tech industry also expressed concern, with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, LinkedIn and many more explaining that the industry’s much needed diversity, which fosters innovation, comes from immigration.
In line with Shepard Fairey’s formerly featured ‘We The People’ posters, more creatives have taken to show their support against the entry prohibition through heartwarming illustrations.
Green posted, “For every reply to this tweet with a hand-drawn message of support for immigrants, Muslims, and/or refugees, I will donate $5 to the ACLU.”
At time of writing, Green has already donated US$11,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) – an organization that works to protect the individual rights and liberties promised by the Constitution and laws of the United States.
Other illustrators have also uploaded their works to Instagram under ‘#NoBanNoWall’. View some the artworks below.

Thank you @aclu_nationwide! I should have joined before this. Here is my temporary membership card until the real one arrives. You can be a member for as little as five dollars a month and this helps the ACLU defend muslims, immigrants and other unfairly targeted groups. Last night I also deleted my uber account. These might feel like little actions, but there are A LOT of us and our collective actions add up. ❤
