Flamman, one of Sweden’s oldest socialist publications, has launched a campaign under the heading, “Make Erdoğan the angriest man in Ankara – get a satirical poster into the bargain!” that offers supporters satirical posters featuring the Turkish leader.
The campaign follows the recent Turkish uproar over the display of an effigy of President Erdoğan at Stockholm’s Pride march. The initiative is a direct response to the controversy, with Flamman using it as an opportunity to champion the cause of freedom of expression.
For a subscription fee of 95 kronor, supporters are presented with a choice between two provocative poster designs: one by Henry Åström, which portrays a caricatured Erdoğan, and another by Carl-Johan De Geer that showcases a Turkish flag. The campaign’s underlying message is clear: to challenge and scrutinise both domestic and international threats to free speech.
