The donor of this badge, John Ellis, writes:
As a long-time supporter of socialism as the better system under which
to live, I wore this anti-capitalism badge to May Day marches. I wore
this badge as a protest against what I consider to be out-of-control
capitalism. It is a statement against the power of big business, the
exploitation of small communities and the unequal distribution of
wealth. It is a protest against the over-consumerism that occurs under
capitalism and which leads to the degradation of our environment.
I wore [this badge] to let people know how I felt
and hopefully to influence them. When wearing the badge, it was a
connection with other activists.
