Propaganda posters, Urumqi, Xinjiang Province: Urumqi has suffered bomb attacks in recent years, as the Uurgur minority fight for their independence. As well as installing a security guard and scanner at the entry to every shopping mall and train station (no liquids allowed on the MTS – that’s no sip of water on the plus 40degC days that are common!), the government has also installed these posters, stylised in the fashion of traditional Central Asian art, showing the minorities working together to build a strong China.
