The posters, some say, look like Soviet propaganda.
Alexandria introduced the new one-sheets with a couple of “thrilled” tweets:
These posters push us to imagine our future with a Green New Deal in two of our beloved NY-14 parks: Pelham Bay & Flushing Meadows.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) August 30, 2019
All our #GND posters are made in the US, union-printed & will be available for purchase soon, but available at organizing events now.
Our #GreenNewDeal posters are inspired by the original New Deal, updated for our future.
During the New Deal, FDR launched Federal One, a US project that employed 5,300 artists that created & taught art to envision America’s future.

Hey, why would a twenty-something in contemporary society believe they had the answer to all of America’s problems?
Aw, that’s just a distraction. Back to the posters:
Why does this seem like something the Soviet Union would post throughout the Red Square? https://t.co/buxyph4kSV— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) August 30, 2019
I’m not saying the Green New Deal poster that AOC just tweeted reminds me of the WWII statue in Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad) but here we are pic.twitter.com/FjB14jmzXz— Miriam Elder (@MiriamElder) August 30, 2019
