Solidarity is the lifeblood of progress, a force that transcends time and borders, and is a rallying cry for justice, equality, and unity. From the Labour Party poster of 1910 challenging the House of Lords' rejection of the Peoples Budget to the design for a socialist poster depicting "The Workers May-Pole, " solidarity has been at the forefront of social movements. Even in times of conflict, like during World War I's Christmas Truce in 1914, solidarity emerged as soldiers from opposing sides laid down their weapons to celebrate together. Trades union membership certificates symbolize workers standing shoulder-to-shoulder against exploitation and fighting for fair wages and better conditions. In moments when nations come together, such as when bands like the Coldstream Guards march past Buckingham Palace during rehearsals for Trooping the Colour or Scots Guards marching along The Mall, London becomes a stage where solidarity takes center stage. Solidarity knows no boundaries; it reaches across continents. In China's Communist Party poster from 1950, citizens are urged to give everything for their country. This sentiment echoes throughout history as seen in Karl Pavlovich Briullov's painting "Oedipe et Antigone, " where a young girl aids her blind father on his journey—a powerful depiction of familial solidarity. From digitally restored war propaganda posters calling people to action to strike meetings in Boldon demanding workers' rights—solidarity remains an unwavering force that drives change forward. Solidarity binds us together beyond our differences—it unites us under one common purpose: progress. Whether through political movements or acts of compassion towards one another, we find strength when we stand united. Solidarity reminds us that we are not alone but part of something greater than ourselves—the collective power to shape our world into one built on fairness and justice for all.
