‘The people are God’: See North Korea’s new propaganda slogans and posters

Kim Jong Un opts for simplicity instead of “flashy” rallying cries of recent years

In a long-standing New Year's tradition, North Korea is rolling out a new series of propaganda slogans and posters that urge citizens to rally around the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea.

Three new propaganda posters promoting the top-line slogans and ideals for 2021 were released on Tuesday, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Some were already displayed at a mass rally in downtown Pyongyang last Friday during celebrations marking the end of the country’s Eighth Party Congress, and posters will likely soon be displayed on streets and in public buildings and factories nationwide.
