As reported by Swiss newspaper The Local, the poster shows an image of Winehouse next to the slogan "No -- to the decriminalisation of drugs."
The poster has been made by a section of the Young SVP in the Unterwallis area, with the SVP reportedly known for stirring up controversy. They have in the past released a poster showing a black sheep being kicked off the Swiss flag by a white one, alongside the slogan "For More Security."
President of the Young SVP Unterwallis Gregory Logean seems a little confused over the controversy surrounding the reference to Amy Winehouse, who passed away on July 23 at her North London home.
He said, "The death of Amy Winehouse put a sad reality before our eyes that other parties often forget -- the harmful effects of drug consumption. It is not our methods which are shocking -- it is reality. We are displaying a photo that the whole world already knows. Winehouse was known not only for her songs, but above all for her drug excesses."
