Badge - Nuclear Family No Thanks, Australia, 1970s-1980s Object Reg. No: SH 870484

Summary:
'Nuclear Family No Thanks' badge, alternatively known as a button, produced in the 1970s in response to mounting debates around nuclear testing and nuclear power. The text on this badge is a play on the well-known anti-nuclear slogan 'Nuclear Power? No Thanks'. The anti-nuclear movement in Australia began around 1972, when the French increased testing of bombs in the Pacific. The Movement was particularly active throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
Description:
Circular badge. It has a laminated front with a yellow background and a red star burst. It has a black and yellow picture of four people hugging - a man, a woman and two children - over the red star burst. There is a black inscription around the edge. It is silver coloured on the back with a wire pin and loop.
