    Le racisme divise
    Le racisme fait diversion
    La racisme tue
    Tous unis pour soutenir les luttes des travailleurs immigrés !

    (“Racism divides
    Racism creates diversion
    Racism kills
    All united to support struggles of migrant workers!”)

    The typeface is Compacta, which might be distinguished from the French copy British Inserat by its higher and flatter i dots. The poster has no designer credits. Various organisations are mentioned on the bottom of the poster. The design is undated, but as it was included in the exhibition May 68 et la Suite, the poster could be from the late 1960s to mid 1970s.
