Pins help you to differentiate yourself from unwanted personal connotations – they protect you from undesirable reproaches. In the wide range of pseudo and semi-political amulets people wear, the unique pins of the Protest Supplies Store’s Antagonizers series, are not meant for differentiation or protection, but to start a conversation; opening up controversial domains to be interacted with on an interpersonal level. Very unrepresented, but pressingly present.. political topics, rather than the ‘standard’ post-modern political stances, are imaged in this series. Wear with pride, wear with conflict.The 'Spray Me!-pin' is a little more than 3cm tall, and coloured with durable enamel and can be attached with two strong butterfly clasp clutches.
In many protest situations, tensions are neutralised through the application of fear by the police, say by the use of pepper spray. Many protests, however, depend on a few brave ones to break the fear and to spike hope. Become this martyred person, and state that you can or even want to be ‘sprayed’. Now when the police see you while you hold your eyes wide open, they will think twice, for their weapon has suddenly become your weapon. A police officer spraying someone who wants to be sprayed, will take away the connotation of punishment which comes forth when people are sprayed unwanted.
