    Is anyone collecting ephemera such as those illustrated from the Russia–Georgia War (or South Ossetia War) 2008?

    I wonder how many such protest posters are still around?

    I would expect for them not to be in English.
    I am not sure what language the Georgians speak but I wonder about the posters being printed in English.

    Very interesting posters!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Indeed. Very interesting.
    Not least because some of them reminds me of WWII propaganda posters.

    I believe these posters were in English for the benefit of the western media especially the US who supported the Georgians in their stance against the Russians.

    I've never thought about this topic, but those posters/stickers are great!

    The one with the vodka bottle and and the one with the backdrop of the flag of Georgia are both written in the Georgian language as well as English. As others have said, it must have been done as such for the benefit of the media. I've seen a lot of protestors in places like Greece and the Middle East using signs written at least partially in English, and I've always assumed that was the reason.

    Especially the "Stop Russia" one! It looks very much like U.S. anti-Japanese material produced during the war.

    If you've ever seen modern North Korean propaganda, it looks very much like Stalinist and Maoist propaganda of the 1950s and '60s. Very regressive!
