In 2005 Popularis the election scrutineers, started a competition with students at Leicester College to design anti racism posters. The brief was simple, design a poster with a clear message that trade unions oppose racism to put up on notice boards at work, at college, at home, anywhere for people to see. Here is a selection of the 2007/8 posters printed by Ruskin Press.
