Note to Aldi, for Australia Day, I’d like to see a more honest approach to the past

I agree the truth of the past should never be ignored.

    Interesting pots, as far as I have understood the T shirts are in fact quite racist…

    But I just wonder if we must mix History & Politics with slogans & mottos printed on a T-Shirt…

    After all I don´t think is is the best place to make statements on political issues.

    But well it is true that the Tshirt´s slogan means so much more than what it could seem at first sight.

    Thanks for letting me know more about your country, Irina , Cheers xxoo,

    Aquileana 🙂

      The writer of this article would prefer “penal colony, established 1788.” This, of course, is true. But white settlers wouldn’t be comfortable with that on a T-shirt. And you are perfectly right in my opinion, why do we need politically sensitive slogans on T-shirts?
