We don't cross borders; borders cross us.

Summary

Poster issued by the Cross Border Collective as part of their "We don't cross borders; borders cross us" poster series designed "to invite an engaged audience to consider a series of propositions about the Australian border, labour, race and incarceration." This poster features the title in orange, with additional text in black. Text interspersed with the title reads: They don't care how much pain you are in. Even if you are dying, if you want to see the nurse and get a Panadol, you have to break something. If you break the window, they will agree that you are dying. "www.crossbordersydney.org" appears in the lower right corner below the series title.
