First Gulags Revival

Recommended Posts

Gulags were the chain of labour camps in the former Soviet Union where (mainly) political prisoners were sent, I believe. At least that's what I could pick up from reading A Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich in English class.


The gulag reference comes from the Amnesty International report calling the prisons at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay part of "the gulag of our times." In connection with this poster and another one I posted in a thread about a month or so back, it's a sarcastic comparison of totalitarianism with the heightened sense of fear in the United States. (I know, this one is in England, but the other one was in the US.)
