“Who shall plead that man’s excuse, who steals the common from the goose.”
Privatisation of public land is not a modern concern as this phase from the 18th Century protest poem confirms. The badge captures the spirit of protest and acts of commoning to protect common land.
Designed by artist Alice McLean this pin badge was first a token made with Justine Boussard to commemorate the protection of Pekham Rye Common against encroachment in 1868.
The badge is a hard enamelled pin badge crafted in Birmingham by Fattorini.
Fastens with a butterfly clasp. Smooth surface. 3cm diameter.
Plastic free and fully compostable packaging.
