ID: A collage made by Matteo Delred. The quote reads, "Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant, singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement, it is the dogma of a few, and not the faith of a multitude." - James Connolly. The writing is surrounded by a greyed out, muted pastel illustration of rather abstract cartoon figures singing, arms outstretched. In the corner is a photo superimposed of a white woman with a fringe and her hair tied back, singing into a large megaphone.
