OSPAAAL / Cuban propaganda posters

“Bold, colourful and eclectic, OSPAAAL posters are widely considered the front-runners in propaganda art. They reveal the idealistic spirit at the core of the Cuban revolution, intent on fighting globalisation, imperialism and defending human rights. Politics aside, they are a testament to the creativity of the Cuban people, an important legacy that has put Cuba at the centre of cultural activity in the Hispanic world for a generation.”

In 1987, Donald Moffett created He Kills Me in response to Ronald Reagan’s inaction and smugness about the HIV/AIDS crisis that was leaving people for death. The image itself remains unmistakable today - for its visual contrast and its ability to say so much while using so little. I think about this tonight because Donald Trump is set to take the stage at the RNC tonight. 

“He kills me” is the only appropriate descriptor for what his presidency can bring. Surely for queer people, if he has Mike Pence as his VP, and for the millions of immigrants and people of color that call this country home. We have to remember this now, and come November. There’s nothing good a Trump presidency can bring.

WHO WE ARE

In the wake of GE2017, we’ve picked up lots of new followers so we thought we’d give a quick run-down of what YVUK is all about.

We are a non-profit organisation working towards an informed electorate through education.

We live in an age where information on any topic is available with a few keystrokes, but where it’s increasingly difficult to know how much of that information is accurate. You only have to look at the front page of The Sun to see how much our news is being distorted daily.

Young Voters UK aims to present the political news in an unbiased way so that we as a generation understand our vote.

If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved with, we’d love to have you on our team! We are looking for volunteer writers, campaigners, graphic designers and researchers: for more information, email yvukreply@gmail.com
