Significance

These stickers and T-shirts are representative of the group 'Australians Against Racism and Discrimination' efforts to counteract racism and discrimination in Australian society through the social networking site Facebook. Many of the slogans on these stickers and t-shirts were created to counteract racist slogans developed and used recently, especially since the Cronulla riots of 2005. The slogans and imagery on the stickers and t-shirts are also an attempt to counteract the 'hijacking' of the Australian flag and southern cross for nationalist 'Aussie Pride' protests.
