Alternative Name(s): Button

Liberal students' badge used in referenda to secede from the Australian Union of Students (AUS). The badge opposed the presumption that the wearer wants to be in the AUS.

The Australian Union of Students (AUS) was formed in December 1970 as the successor to the National Union of Australian University Students (NUAUS) as a representative body and lobby group for Australian University and College of Advanced Education students. It collapsed in 1984 and was succeeded by the National Union of Students in 1987 (Wikipedia 17/05/2018).
