The badge bears the logo of the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT). This is a UK-based organisation working to stop international arms trade that was founded in 1974 by a range of peace coalitions coming together. They campaign for overall demilitarisation but especially aim to stop purchase of weapons where they can support conflict and oppressive regimes or infringe on welfare through military spending. The organisation also has other regional variants, such as the Australian Campaign Against Arms Trade (ACAAT). This group is specifically campaigning against arms trade in the Asia -Pacific region and aims to stop Australian exports of armament. This particular badge was produced by Patrick Brothers, a Melbourne business, so it was likely made for the Australian branch.
