Panel Six, "Fight or Starve", shows two key events from the 1930s:

The 1932 Hunger Marchers;

The International Brigade of the Spanish Civil War.

The title, "fight or starve", comes from the slogan adopted by the Hunger Marchers.

 

By including both events in this frame what is the artist saying about these struggles?
