Heading  RASSEMBLEMENT POUR LA RÉPUBLIQUE’ – Avec Jacques Chirac – VOTEZ RPR
Dimensions  80 x 64 cm
Publisher  Jean Didier S.A. 1976
Condition  unused (new old stock) – with weak folds as issued (but stored unfolded)

In 1976, Jacques Chirac founded the RPR right-wing party, which supported General Charles de Gaulle’s ideas and merged into the UMP in 2002 (now Les Républicains).

This political poster with an alarm red background used to launch the RPR expresses hatred towards the previous Giscardian regime.

In this poster, Chirac used the Gaullistic symbols (the Lorraine cross and the sculpture of the Marseillaise de Rude).
