After establishing the Nanjing Nationalist government, Chiang organised a political campaign in April 1927, commonly known as the Shanghai massacre. The aim of this campaign was to purge the Communist members and marginalise the leftist Kuomintang (KMT) members within the party through arrests and executions. In 1928 KMT leftist leaders 汪精衛 [Wang Jingwei] and 陳公博 [Chen Gongbo] organised a "Reorganisation Faction" aiming to restore the spirit of Three Principles of the People and to reorganise the party. The Nanjing Nationalist government, in its defence, issued many propaganda posters at that time, targeting the young party members and telling them not to believe the distorted version of the "Three Principles of the People" advocated by Wang and Chen. The "Reorganisation Faction" was dissolved by Wang Jingwei in January 1931. The three colour combination of the weapons shown at the top of this poster derive from the "Blue Sky, White Sun, and a Wholly Red Earth" symbol of the KMT and Republic of China, was made the national flag in 1928. .
