Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski posted an International Women’s Day tribute on Twitter accompanied by a poster which bears uncanny similarities to a Chinese communist propaganda poster

In addition to the Women’s Day greeting, Trzaskowski referred to the 2020 pro-abortion protests which followed the Constitutional Tribunal’s verdict banning eugenic abortion, according to Polish news outlet wPolitiyce.

“I would like to write ‘I wish you all the best’ but that would not be enough. Not in the situation in which you have found yourselves. This is why this year, on this Women’s Day and every following one, I wish you due respect, equality and freedom of decision. I wish you your rights. Warsaw is with you! #WarsawIsAWoman,” Trzaskowski wrote on Twitter.

Journalist Daniel Liszkiewicz pointed out that the poster shared by Trzaskowski bears uncanny resemblance to a Maoist propaganda poster.

“Clear inspiration from a Chinese communist propaganda poster is noticeable here,” he wrote, attaching the poster in question.

This is not the first time that a poster published by Trzaskowski or the Warsaw city hall has caused controversy.

Previously, the Warsaw City Hall sparked heated discussion with a Christmas card that it shared. The card was completely devoid of any Christian symbolism associated with Christmas. Trzaskowski himself saw nothing wrong with the image, claiming that it had many Christmas symbols such as the moon and stars.

The creator of the image, Aleksandra Jasionowska, is also responsible for the Women’s Strike symbols, including the red lightning bolt across the image of a woman’s face.
