My march for ANZAC Day

Outside my studio at the moment people are marching up the highway in uniforms and stirring bagpipe music is being played by a marching band.

I considered sticking this notice in my studio window but are too cowardly to invite confrontation and I'm busy with my art and don't want to invite (possibly aggressive) debate from those it might annoy





MAKE LOVE
NOT WAR

THE HEROES I 
CELEBRATE WERE 
CALLED 
CONSCIENTIOUS 
OBJECTORS



The mythologising of war annoys me mightily. Killing each other is a horrific not-solution to political conflict. If we need to combat each other I believe Ghandhi showed us that passive organised resistance is the way oppression can be defeated.
