Poster competition for International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism

This machine can kill fascismLet’s say it louder: NEVER AGAIN!

Nowadays, as racism, right-wing populism and hate crimes are on the rise across Europe, civil society must concentrate all its efforts on stopping and reversing populist narratives and thus the spread of discrimination and bias-motivated violence.

For this year’s International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism campaign,  commemorating the ‘Kristallnacht’ on 9 November 1938, UNITED is organising a special poster competition and invites all its partner organisations and supporters to submit poster designs to contribute to spreading our campaign message.

Inspired by the message that singer Woody Guthrie placed on his guitar in 1941, “This Machine Kills Fascists”, which inspired many subsequent artists, we aim to spread the message that fascism and antisemitism can be “killed” with the joint effort of civil society.

We call upon members of the UNITED network and activists all over Europe to contribute to the campaign with their own ideas of powerful messages that inspire civil society to be active and stand firm against populist, fascist and antisemitic narratives.
