    What does it tell us? What does it tell us? Why they have this sentence spoke by the the Governor ? The Straits Times, Feb 14, 1942 What does it tell us?
    • Although the report states that " Yesterday was probably Singapore’s worst day since fighting began in Malaya ", it still stressed that " several Japanese tanks have been destroyed in Singapore ." And it still carried the slogan "Singapore Must Stand; it SHALL Stand " - H.E. the Governor’ under its masthead.
    British still have the power to protect people in Singapore tell us? T he day before Singapore fell to the Japanese . Under British’s control To give people in Singapore confidence The Straits Times, Feb 14, 1942 Japanese bring doom to Singapore.
  • The purpose of this propaganda
    • The British wanted to give the people in Singapore more confidence and wanted to show that they still had the power to protect Singapore. Japanese were cruel and they brought doom to Singapore. British were the family but Japanese were the enemy.
  • Japanese propaganda

Notice also the crowns falling off the head of the British and Americans indicative of their wealth and opulence. the Americans as a criminal donning a prisoner’s striped uniform Britain is depicted as a portly figure A single wooden shoe represents the Dutch The Chinese character possesses an animal’s tail
  • The purpose of this propaganda
    • This propaganda shows that Japan was the positive sun and western countries were in the negative side. Actually, Japanese was trying to humiliate them. They could not win over Japan. Japan was the leader to free the Asian people, only Japanese was superior .

D utch escape from the light of Japanese T hey are shaking hands. T hat means they have a good relationship. T his is Japanese hand literally as the hand of God from T he Japanese hand is far lighter in colour than the dark-skinned native's and a jacket cuff is in evidence
  • The purpose of this propaganda
    • The Japanese had the daunting task of not only conquering these other Asian countries, but also persuading them to join their cause . The Japanese, if they were to establish a stronghold within their Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, they would have to win over the favour of those countries . Japan had to positively promote their ideas to the Chinese, Koreans, South and Southeast Asians that a unified Asia, under Japanese leadership , free from the capitalist and economic influence of the West, was inherently and naturally good. Without the support of other Asian nations, Japan’s cause would flounder.
  • What does it represent? Who is this? What does it represent? Who are they? What do they represent? What are they doing?
  • The ABCD letters in the background stand for the American, British, Chinese, and Dutch. S laves . They are dark skinned suggesting that they are South Asian They are trampling over the slaves. E ach person standing with one hand in his coat pocket in a Napoleon-like pose
    • Japanese wanted to the Asian that anyone related to the western power were enemy and cruel. The western only thought about their only profit and did not care about other people.
    The purpose of this propaganda
  • Conclusion
    • Japan specifically appealed to Southeast Asians by:
    • Calls for racial solidarity = ASIA for the ASIATICS (racist)
    • Brothers-kinship terms ( with elder/younger status always noted in Asian languages)
    • Promising economic benefits = GREATER EAST ASIA CO-PROSPERITY SPHERE (an East Asian merchantilist system with Japan as the "mother" country, the industrialized center.).
