Vintage Anti-American Posters from North Korea

“Do not forget the US imperialist wolves!”

In North Korea, the last stronghold of 20th century dictator-lead personality cults, propaganda posters are still rampant. For nearly 60 years, the country has been plastered on nearly every street corner, country road or outpost with examples such as the posters below. The newer versions posted in recent years interestingly have changed little in their style.

“When provoking a war of aggression, we will hit back, beginning with the US!”

“Though the dog barks, the procession moves on!”

“Death to US imperialists, our sworn enemy!”

“Let’s drive the US imperialists out and reunite the fatherland!”

“The US is truly an Axis of Evil.”

“When we say we will, we will. We do not talk idly!”

“Wicked Man.”

Here are two examples of encouraging posters… for healthy animals. Lots of them!
“Prevention and more prevention. Let’s fully establish a veterinary system for the prevention of epidemics!”

“Let’s extensively raise goats in all families!”
