A propaganda poster of the Galactic Empire circa 5 BBY

Nearly all major governments, including the Galactic Republic, Confederacy of Independent Systems, Rebel Alliance, and the Galactic Empire, made use of propaganda. For example, the Rebel Alliance used the Destruction of Alderaan as anti-Imperial propaganda, and the Republic used the exploits of the Jedi hero Anakin Skywalker as propaganda.

A propaganda poster was a type of a placard or advertisement used by governments to transmit propaganda messages—such as justifying involvement to its citizens, ensuring recruitement or procuring money and resources to sustain the war effort. The Galactic Empire established by Palpatine in 19 BBY made use of propaganda posters as early as 5 BBY.[1] The Alliance to Restore the Republic, which opposed the Empire's rule, also made use of such placards during the Galactic Civil War.[2]

The Meatlumps employed the use of propaganda in the form of graffiti, and the printing of manifestos which promoted their views.

During the Empire Day festivities of 1 ABY, Brenn Tantor employed Imperials to tear down Rebel propaganda posters which proclaimed, "Remember Alderaan", and put up posters which promoted the Empire. The Rebels struck back by graffiti-tagging the Imperial posters.
