AKA Peace

Seeking to "collaborate against apathy,” 24 contemporary artists took part this week in "AKA Peace," a London exhibit for which they recast decommissioned AK-47 assault rifles into artworks for peace. The project, conceived by photographer and 2011 Amnesty International Media Award winner Bran Symondson after serving in Afghanistan, will raise funds for the non-profit Peace One Day and its Global Truce 2013 campaign.


 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
