I will give up on the world before I give myself up
and will they take my life in time?
- or will i take my own?
As the release of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 01" draws closer, a series of striking propaganda posters from The Capitol have been released; proclaiming a false sense of peace and unity within the conflicted post-apocalyptic nation by promoting the rallying cry of “One Panem" as a means to distract the population from the rising rebellion sparked by The Girl on Fire, Katniss Everdeen.
The collection of posters above features ‘everyday heroes’ handpicked by the Capitol Ministry of Information and endorsed by President Coriolanus Snow himself, who declared the following statement upon their public debut: “Today we celebrate the proud men and women who live and breathe their Districts. Today we are One Panem.”
The various Panem citizens featured in the propaganda posters represent some of the outlying Districts that provide specific needs to the Capitol and the rest of the country. They are:
- Fibre Bissette, age 32, from District 3 (Technology)
- Naida Dolan, age 22, from District 4 (Fishing)
- Malcolm Kastel, age 31, from District 6 (Transportation)
- Elias Haan, age 26, from District 7 (Lumber)
- Triti Lancaster, age 17, from District 9 (Grain)
- Felix Stam, age 35, from District 10 (Livestock)
- Lily Elsington, age 6, from Distrct 12 (Mining)
