Class Struggle/Revolutionary Action Poster, 1965

This is an unusual poster with 2 distinct images on the same page, albeit with common Communist/Revolutionary themes to tie them together.

The poster is entitled, 'Get A Foothold, Don't Forget Class Struggle; Heighten Our Vigilance, Hold Your Revolutionary Gun Tightly'.

The images are classic Chinese communist - worker and students on the class struggle side; student and militia on vigilance side. Interesting to note that the one student is holding a grenade and that there are two women holding the rifles.

The poster measures 77cm (30.25 inches) x 52cm (20.5 inches). It was printed in 1965.
