Button made in the BDR in the early 1980’s. Purpose of the button is partly unknown. The text on the button reads:”All Guns Against The Dictatorship”. Could be about the Iran-Iraq war but this is unlikely. Probably the button is aimed against Saddam Hussein who was against the Communist Party in Iraq.
The Iraqi Communist Party is a political party in Iraq and founded in 1934. The party has played a fundamental role in shaping the political history of Iraq between its foundation and the 70s. The party was involved in many important national revolts and demonstrations in the 40s and 50. The party has heavily suffered from repressive regimes From the Ba’ath party and Saddam Hussein, but remained an important element of the Iraqi opposition, and was a pronounced opponent of the United Nations sanctions against Iraq after the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Also the party resisted the US invasion in Iraq in 2003.
