Description

This 1970 poster, by Cuban designer Lazaro Abreu, commemorates the "Day of the Heroic Guerrilla," a celebration of the life and legacy of Ernest "Che" Guevara. The poster was published by OSPAAAL, the Organisation in Solidarity with the People of Africa, Asia and Latin America, the main publisher of international solidarity posters in Cuba. Notably, these colorful propaganda posters were not designed to be posted on walls within Cuba, as others were. Instead, they were folded and stapled inside the magazine, Tri-Continental, where they were then distributed internationally.
