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 'Tank Man-pin' is 5cm tall and about 2cm wide, and coloured with durable enamel and can be attached with a strong butterfly clasp clutch. All pins in the Antagonizers-series are of limited editions. This pin is one of the 2019-series, and is designed by PSS-team member Leroy Spelt.
This pin is a homage to the unknown but iconic “Tank Man” who stopped a column of moving tanks during the Tiananmen Square Protest in Beijing on June 5th of 1989. Although he has been listed as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, up until today no one knows who this man was, or what has happened to him. But not anymore! With support of this pin, you could become a Tank Man yourself. In just 3 simple steps you could stop anything you would like.
Step 1: Put this pin on your shirt. Step 2: Find something you don’t like. Step 3: Make it stop.
