- Canary Badge: $10.00
- Chemically sensitive people have for long thought of themselves as
canaries. Canaries were used by miners to give an early warning of
contaminated air in a mine - if the canary survived, so too would
the miners. ACTA members and other chemically affected people liken
themselves to the miner's canary. They feel that they are at the
leading edge of a spreading epidemic which will eventually corrode
all of humanity.
- ACTA has adopted the canary as a universal symbol for chemically
affected individuals and groups and a means of promoting the work of
ACTA. All ACTA members are encouraged to avail themselves of these
badges, not only to identify themselves, but to express solidarity
with chemical victims everywhere. The badge is 25mm high, finished
in yellow, black and white enamel with a clear epoxy coating. The
initials ACTA appear at the base of the badge. It is made in
Australia from brass, electro-plated in gold, and fitted with a
heavy duty locking brooch pin. The quality of workmanship of the
product is excellent, and we highly recommend it.
