What is the slogan, mostly obscured by the typist, on the poster that hangs behind him, on this poster from 1956?

the poster is this one:

enter image description here

the propaganda is “社會主義是我們的目標,是我們的方向”, most characters are in simplified chinese.

the meaning is, roughly: “socialism is our target, is our direction”

    It is not exactly Simplified Chinese we use now. See "們", it is Traditional Chinese.
