This badge belonged to the national Hiroshima Day Campaign of 1977 in Australia. The theme of the campaign was 'Take a stand, stop uranium mushrooming' and the design with the emu and kangaroo appeared on all promotional material, including posters and buttons. This particular badge was produced by Patrick Brothers, a Melbourne business, so it was most likely used there as well. The march in Melbourne had 15.000 participants while nation-wide there were around 50.000

Physical Description
