Bottom right corner has a large "1."

Poster has a black and white background with black text. There are two photographs; the larger one is of several Nicaraguan soldiers riding in one vehicle holding rifles and flags, the smaller photo is of the damage to Nicaragua after the 1972 earthquake. The poster reads, "The legacy of debt and destruction." The block of text below the image starts with, "Nicaragua is a poor, marginalised country, traditionally dominated by North American imperialism which throughout the criminal Somoza dictatorship imposed on us a dependent capitalist model which contributed to the decapitalization of the country..." and ends with, "...The country we inherited was characterized by decapitalization, dependency on imperialism, underdevelopment, low exports, a large foreign debt, destruction and ruins."
