Workers, peasants, soldiers (1966-1972)
Workers, peasants and soldiers (工农兵, gong
) are considered to be the pillars of the new Chinese society. During the Cultural Revolution
they are portrayed as the rulers of the country. In reality, of course, they are just the people, ruled by the Party. In these posters, political loyalty to Mao is much more important than - for instance - participating in industrial or agricultural production.
