Round badge with the slogan 'No Neutron Bomb', circa 1960s-1980s. This is one of a series of badges and peace movement posters acquired by the museum following the exhibition 'Peace: an Exhibition' which explored the Peace movement and was part of the Victorian Government contribution to International Year of Peace in 1986. The badges explore the peace movement, nuclear disarmament and Hiroshima.

The raised fist has been an enduring symbol of unity and solidarity. However, the New Left movement of the 1960s, specifically in America, is credited with giving it this new treatment: it appears stylised, isolated, simple, on a plain background. It was used across social campaigns: peace, anti-Vietnam war, and like in this example, anti-nuclear movements.
