Love means never having to say you're sorry

This poster refers to John Howard's refusal to apologise to indigenous Australians and the Stolen Generations. The words ‘Love means never having to say you're sorry' are taken from the 1970 film, Love Story. The artist's selective use of yellow text changes the message by emphasising the words ‘loves means...sorry'.
