Not in my Name anti-war badge

CM 2003-5-63-2

Badges are often used to show political ideas. This one has been produced for a group called the 'Stop the War Coalition', who formed in Britain in 2001.

The Stop the War Coalition is opposed to the invasion of Iraq, as well as the 'War on Terror' announced by President Bush. On 15th February 2003 an estimated 5 million people worldwide took part in marches around the world against the war in Iraq.
