This poster is an ironic cartoon by the popular cartoonist Vladimír Rencín for the Civic Forum party. Civic Forum had led opposition to communist rule in Czechoslovakia during the ‘Velvet Revolution’. The poster suggests that the time for revolutionary euphoria is over and that there is now a lot of hard work to do in order to turn around Czechoslovakia and solve its economic and social problems.
