War Is Trauma is portfolio of handmade prints created and co-organized by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative and  Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) and their allies. The collaboration was born from a street poster project in November 2010, in which a number of Justseeds artists provided graphics for “Operation Recovery” – a campaign to stop the deployment of traumatized troops and win service members and veterans right to heal. Posters were pasted in public, replacing many corporate advertisements, to focus public attention towards the issues not being discussed – GI Resistance, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sexual assault in the military or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
