TheOrganization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and LatinAmerica (Organización de Solidaridad con los Pueblos de Asia, África y América Latina), abbreviated as OSPAAAL produced brightly colored propaganda posters promoting their internationalism and socialist causes. Usually they had their message written in Spanish, English, French, and Arabic. As opposed to being put up on walls around Cuba like other type of propaganda poster, these were instead folded up and stapled into copies of Tricontinental, so that they could be distributed internationally by mail subscription. This allowed OSPAAAL to send its message to the several hundred thousand subscribers around the world . Cuban political posters are among the best designed in the world and many prizes were awarded to their creators.
