Manila, Philippines. 1987.

Although American "intervention" was indirect, The Philippines believed they were instrumental into President Cory Aquino's ascent to power. This poster showed her in supplication, pleading for US military bases be retained. Translation of Pilipino is: We fought for freedom (Above). Underneath the caricature, US Bases out immediately. Gratitude for "restoring" democracy
wears thin in the midst of irremedial poverty. The reddish hue is unmistakably,
the color of blood.
