Online: 5000 posters from the international anti-nuclear movement

Laka launches a database with almost 5,000 posters from the worldwide anti-nuclear movement. The database is part of Laka's 'special collections' - the fighting culture of the international anti-nuclear movement - which also includes music and graphic novels. Apart from campaigning against the pro-nuclear revival in the Netherlands, Laka has an important function as treasurer of the cultural heritage of the anti-nuclear movement: in the Netherlands but also internationally.
Laka has a large collection of posters itself, but has expanded the collection for this database over the years with images of posters received from other organizations or to be found on the internet. All these almost 5000 posters exist not only as digital files but also on paper: that is one of the conditions to be included in this collection. Another condition is that the size must be larger than 21x30cm (A4) to be considered a poster. On this poster page there is also attention for other online collections of posters from other social movements, an overview of poster books, and more.

These 5,000 (or so) posters are undoubtedly only a small part of the posters that have been made worldwide against nuclear power plants, uranium mining, radioactive waste, etc.. But it is already a very nice collection that also gives an idea of the global struggle. Although the vast majority of the posters come from Western Europe and North America, there are hundreds from other countries; and that while printing posters is much more difficult in countries where the anti-nuclear movement suffers from a lack of infrastructure and financial resources, and often from greater repression.

Laka's online poster collection is a work in progress. And will remain so. We would like to expand it with more and more posters: contribute by sending in your posters or images of posters (contact us at We also want to add more and more information about for example the campaign of which the poster is part of, or the action or activity the poster refers to.

Almost every digital image has been edited: after all, it is not about showing the state of the posters in our collection, but about showing the poster in all its glory. Therefore holes, tears and tape residue have been digitally removed and faded colours restored.
