These protest badges were purchased by the donor in various opportunity shops; a detailed provenance about the campaigns in which they were used in therefore not available. They date from the mid-1990s, and all were probably used in demonstrations in Melbourne. Some relate to the State Government of Jeff Kennett (1992 -1999); others for campaigns for oil rights for East Timor, and independence from the Indonesian Government; others relate to student demonstrations.
