The donor of this badge, John Ellis, writes:
I wore this anti-Iraq/Afghanistan War badge intermittently to
demonstrations and to other events. It was worn to protest the bombing
of Iraq and the on-going appalling loss of lives and the destruction
that continues to the present day. The popular feeling after 9/11 was
that these actions were in retaliation for
the destruction of the Twin
Towers in New York. However, after many years of protesting US foreign
policies, I feel the principle reason behind the wars has more to do
with oil supplies to the US.
is important to me as it
demonstrates my opposition to war. I wore it to let people know how I
felt and hopefully to influence them.
