Description

La viñeta se publica en el número especial del Primero de Mayo, Día de los Trabajadores. Se representa a un obrero fuerte y victorioso que alza el puño sobre un fondo de talleres y chimeneas. El texto destaca la solidaridad y pujanza de la masa obrera y los sindicatos frente al enemigo común, representado en la parte inferior de la imagen: el capitalista que se parapeta entre su mesa de trabajo (con un retrato de Mussolini), su caja de caudales y un perchero con la esvástica, estableciendo un poderoso vínculo entre fascismo y capitalismo.
The sketch was published in a special May 1st issue, in recognition of International Workers’ Day. A robust and victorious laborer is depicted, raising his fist amidst a background of workshops and chimneys. The text underscores the solidarity and strength of the working classes and unions against a common enemy, as depicted at the bottom of the print: the capitalist takes refuge at his desk (upon which a portrait of Mussolini is observed), and amidst his safe, and coatrack, upon which an image of a swastika can be observed. The print thus establishes a powerful link between fascism and capitalism.
