The IVAW website and the Groundswell Collective blog have a great post and video on a recent IVAW action who continue to amaze and inspire us with their incredible array of dissent, critique of war and power, visual resistance, street performance and tactical media. The action Operation W.A.N.T. (We Are Not Toys) took place on October 11th in the early morning where seven IVAW members of the LA Chapter placed 4,200 toy soldiers on the ground with a sign that read “The Price of Gas: 4171 US SOLDIERS”. The importance of these actions cannot be understated as they keep the unjust war and its terrible consequences in public view and memory and inspire us all to be more active in speaking out.
