Abstract/Summary The T-shirts, 1975, F3430 collection consist of two t-shirts that were kindly donated by Carmel Shute. 'Crush Kerr's Coup' t-shirts were made as part of the University of Queensland staff and student campaign against the dismissal of the Whitlam Government (perhaps by the Aunty Shadbolt Spirit of Liberty newspaper collective) in November 1975. The 'Hecate' t-shirt was made to celebrate the first issue of 'Hecate' in January 1975 for the editorial board members only.

Additional Notes White t-shirt, which bears on the front the words 'Crush Kerr's Coup' in blue and on the back 'Save Democracy Vote Labor' in red. The maker's label has been removed and the t-shirt shows signs of wear and tear.

Worn by Carmel Shute, then a tutor in External Studies at the University of Queensland. Shute wore the 'Crush Kerr's Coup' t-shirt on the day of the Federal Elections in December 1975. The polling booth officers at Toowong threatened not to allow her to vote due to carrying political advertising into the polling booth. (Information provided by Carmel Shute).
