Poster released with the uncensored 1981 reissue of Crass’ The Feeding Of The Five Thousand. Riffing on the "Your Country Needs YOU" British World War I recruitment poster, the image is of a burned hand caught in barbed wire rather than of an authoritative man pointing at the viewer. An example of how Crass’s militant aesthetics, appropriating a well-known slogan of state propaganda to reveal the reality of state violence.
