Poster made in support of Iranian political prisoners and protesters against the last Shah of Iran, the U.S.-backed Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, whose overthrow in the 1979 Iranian Revolution was followed by the abolition of the Iranian monarchy and the installation of Ruhollah Khomeini as Supreme Leader and founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The image shows a crowd of protesters, one with a child carried on his shoulders holding a flag reading "Freedom" in Farsi.
