The slogan of this badge, 'I won't die for Thatcher Stop Cruise Missiles' reflects mass public opposition to the Conservative government's decision to allow the United States to base Cruise missiles on British soil. Local peace groups protested against the movement of Cruise missiles by road. The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) organised some of the largest demonstrations in British history with hundreds of thousands taking to the streets of London in protest at nuclear weapons.
