    Lead to Life

    Hello everyone,
    I am posting this in the Art Circle, as the trans-formative action of art can help with healing a community. Guns forged into shovels.
    A very moving piece.

    Thank you for posting Anne, very moving.
    It reminds me on the 'swords into plowshares' ('Schwerter zu Pflugscharen') of biblical origin, that was the maxim of the 80s peace and disarmament movement of East and West Germany.
    I think there was also an international Plowshare movement (GB/US)

    A group of Christian Anarchists here in Australia took direct action a couple of years ago removing a sword from a war memorial and filming themselves turning it into a hand plow of sorts. Ciaran O'Reilly who is famous for being part of a Ploughshares group in the UK that took to a bomber aircraft with hammers lives part time here too although his connection to Julian Assange and his misogynistic attacks on Anarcha-Feminists have seen him estranged from the broader Anarchist community over the last decade.
    Thanks to Anne for posting this.
