While walking through Redfern, an inner city area of Sydney, shiftazine found this 'Wallism'.
It is a beautiful poster that sits on a very old green painted wall of a very old building in the heart of Redfern.
The sentiment of the poster struke shiftazine as an important one.
How does one define a nationality in this modern world?
Is it one of genealogy?

Or is it one of an attitude?
Here is some information found on Wikipedia about the contribution and association Afghanistan has with Australia.
Is it one The "Afghans" or "Ghans" were camel caravaners who worked in Outback Australia from the 1860s to the 1930s.
They included Pathan, Punjabi, Baluchi and Sindhi men from the region between the southern Hindu Kush in Afghanistan and the Indus River in what is now Pakistan, as well as others from Kashmir, Rajasthan, Egypt, Persia and Turkey.
Besides providing vital support to exploration and settlement of the arid interior of the country, these cameleers played a major role in establishing Islam in Australia, building the country's first mosque at Marree in South Australia.
Even though the Afghans' help was greatly appreciated they were also subject to discrimination because of their religion and appearance.
