Sticker - 'Celebration Not Assimilation', Australians Against Racism & Discrimination, 2008 Document Reg. No: HT 23281

Summary:
Sticker with the slogan 'Celebration Not Assimilation' produced by Australians Against Racism and Discrimination in Sydney in 2008. The sticker was produced to counteract racism in Australian society, and was sold through the social networking sites of MySpace and Facebook in 2008 and 2009, and from 2009 at the website ozstickers.com. The slogan refers to celebrating cultural differences rather than assimilating into a monocultural society. Assimilation was a government policy towards Indigenous people in the 1950s and extended to migrants until 1975 when the policy of Multiculturalism was introduced.
Description:
White sticker on white backing paper. Left hand side contains United Nations, Aboriginal and Australian flags. Next to these in light blue text is "Celebration" - the dot on the 'I' is superimposed on a yellow sun. Beneath this is "Not" in dark blue and below this is "Assimilation" in orange. Beneath the slogan is alexg@hiptop.com.au.
