Badge - Lock up the Liberals Free the Refugees, International Socialist Organisation, circa 2002 Reg. No: HT 904
- Badge with the slogan 'Lock up the Liberals Free the Refugees', issued by the International Socialist Organisation (ISO), circa 2002. The slogan 'free the refugees' was used as a standard by the Refugee Action Collective Victoria (RAC) for its badges when it was established in late 2001. Some of the founding members of the RAC were also members of the ISO who were also involved in protesting against the treatment of refugees and the policies towards refugees and asylum seekers at that time. This badge was purchased in Batman Park in 2002.
