Protect the Motherland
English Translation: "Everybody is a Solidier, Protect the Motherland"
This poster, entitled "Every Citizen a Soldier, Protect the Motherland", shows a formation of Chinese peasants and workers assembling in order to fight the enemies of the motherland. During the Cultural Revolution period, the whole of Chinese society was militarized, and expected to be ready to fight enemies both internal and external at any time - even without weapons or uniforms, as is visible in this image. The caption in the upper right reads: "They are Called and They Come, They Come and They Fight, They Fight and They Win".
