Placard - Hands off SLV, 1990 Object Reg. No: SH 910476

Protestors marched from The State Library to The Ministry For The Arts to protest against budget cuts, resulting in reduced security staff and reduced public services for the Library going public. The placard was made using photographic methods including multiple exposures, and writing.
Two pieces of cardboard with white exteriors glued together. One side of the cardboard features slogan in blue texta on white background and a black print of the building with hands over it. Other side features the building with another slogan in blue texta.
