reminder that the flag pictured here was that of a right-wing militia and is still used by right-wingers in ukraine today

witness the photograph purporting to show 'Makhnovists on the move' behind a black flag displaying a death's head: this is a photo that has no connection with pogroms and indeed and especially does not show Makhnovists at all.

- Nestor Makhno

I didn't know that! Whats the meaning behind the text? I head it was "Death to those who oppose the working class" -a seemingly left-wing slogan.

That actually is the meaning! However, it was used by a far-right group known for pogroms; its like National "Socialists." It so happens left-wing ideas appeal to the masses, so right-wing populism invokes the same aesthetic.

I actually had no idea, thanks for informing me. I'll be sure not to use it in future.
