Focus on the Revolution
English Translation: "Focus on the revolution, large trials"
In this poster, you can see a group of workers gathered for a "struggle session", holding copies of the "Little Red Book" of Mao Zedong's selected quotations and yelling slogans at the object of their criticism, not seen. Behind the figures a bulletin board is posted which has slogans and propaganda images on it. During the Cultural Revolution period, "struggle sessions" were widespread and often secretly orchestrated instances of public accusation and criticism in which people with supposed counter-revolutionary tendencies were lambasted and pushed to publicly confess their crimes, sometimes under the threat of physical violence.
