Badge - Stop the Racists, Australia, circa 1990s Reg. No: SH 990423
- Alternative Name(s): Button
Badge with the slogan 'Stop the Racists, Asians are Welcome', it was made and used in Australia, circa 1990s. In the late 1990s cultural diversity and Australia's immigration policies were hotly debated, as recent and potential immigrants to Australia became the focus of both attack and defence during One Nation's highly publicised push for Queensland and Federal Parliament during 1997 and 1998. Badges such as these are a reminder of some of the more contentious aspects of Australia?s migration history.
