Photo review: August 2018 propaganda messages and posters in North Korea
Anti-American posters remain in some museums, ongoing focus on New Years' Speech
Photos taken by visitors to North Korea in late August 2018 and analyzed by NK Pro feature a number of new propaganda slogans which may help outsiders understand emerging trends in the country’s ideology.
While anti-American propaganda remains absent from the streets, a close look at the photos shows that it nevertheless remains present in museums, where hostile exhibits and compositing have not been altered.
Preparations for the 70th anniversary of the DPRK are also mentioned/included on occasional posters and slogans referencing the forthcoming event.
In addition, a number of slogans continue
- 01North Korea is stronger and more resilient than US policymakers think
- 02It’s time for rhetoric to reflect reality: North Korea sanctions don’t work
- 03Full text: Speech marks South Korean President Moon’s fourth year in office
