The cover art pays homage to those organising and fighting against the growing threat of far right political movements here in Australia and across the world. Featured is a detailed portrait of a friend and fellow antifascist organiser, accompanied by two characters symbolising solidarity.
Above them, though not too high above, is a timid, racist, white Australian who wanted to ‘express his right to free speech and challenge political correctness gone mad!’. But you and I ain’t having none of that.
On the back reads the famous slogan ‘No Pasaran!’ – ‘They shall not pass!’ – used in many a battle against fascist forces, most famously during the Spanish Civil War and the Battle of Cable Street.
