OSPAAAL, a Cuban Political Movement

Here are some radical posters by The Organisation of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL), a collection instigated by Michael Tyler.

OSPAAAL’s purpose was to fight globalisation, imperialism, neoliberalism and defend human rights. The posters also encouraged Cuban people to build a new society by promoting sugar harvests, national literacy and celebrating music, arts and dance.
