The Dutch national-socialists were outraged over the permission the exiled Dutch government had given the United States to station troops in Surinam. ‘Robbery,’ fulminated the NSB propagandists as they started a new propaganda campaign. This ‘six-colour printing plate’ was circulated in three different sizes. An identical image, with the call to support Mussert in his ‘crusade against this injustice’ on its reverse side, was circulated door-to-door as a leaflet by the Dutch postal service in an unprecedented printing of over two million copies. The campaign was supported by a ten-minute film that all movie theatres were forced to show for over a month. The campaign’s budget was Dfl. 26,836, a sizeable sum at that time.
