Michel Martelly - Mateli Papa BonKe For Delivering Christmas Gifts

Here is a sign that a fan of Martelly was carrying during the visit of the president to deliver Christmas gifts t the population. The sign says Mateli Papa BonKe

This obviously looks like I am living at the time when Duvalier was in power and where people were obligated to carry these signs of propaganda.

Propaganda is generally an appeal to emotion, not intellect. This form of communication from the Haitian government was used frequently to influence the attitude of the population toward a cause. These biased messages had only one purpose to encourage participation and belief in the regime.
