The sale has already raised over £70,000.

On Friday last week, The Earth Issue launched its Freedom Fundraiser sale. A collection of photography prints from artists across the world, all proceeds from the sale will be split between bail funds for protesters arrested in recent demonstrations and the 4Front Project, a UK based youth organisation that empowers young people to fight for justice, peace and freedom. All US donations will be forwarded to Black Lives Matter.

Over the weekend the sale raised over £70,000 with many prints selling out just hours after the launch. Today, following the success of the sale, The Earth Issue has announced a second round of prints, featuring works from the likes of Chieska Fortune Smith, Johanna Tagada-Hoffbeck, Edwin Antonio, Poulomi Basu, Henry Jay Kamara and many more. The new prints will go on sale from 10 am (BST) tomorrow (09 June) and are priced at £100 per print.

“We want to thank the artists who donated their work to this initiative, and of course everyone who contributed by purchasing prints,” The Earth Issue said in a statement. “We are overwhelmed by your quick and generous response – the power of the global creative community to rally together and support community struggles in a time of need has been truly heartening.”
