Propaganda of Oppression

The propaganda of oppressed groups conveys something that goes against an existing establishment. It is often argued that propaganda is a form of quasi-communication because the audience is left without an opportunity to respond to the message—thus eliminating the chance for a dialogue. In the case of the propaganda of the oppressed, the message conveys something that would otherwise be left unsaid. Instead of a tool of suppression, propaganda becomes a tool of resistance.
