“Locataires ne vous laissez plus etouffer. Oui a la loi contre la speculation fonciere.” A 2000 poster urging tenants “to vote for a law against property speculation.” From an article on the use (and abuse) of animals in political poster campaigns (“Exploiting the animals we love to hate“, 6th Feb 2009, swissinfo.ch).

Related to late 1800s/early 1900s landlordism cartoons??
