The Peace Wall will be an extended display of art, text, handwritten comments, statistical and political analyses, pictures, crafts, etc. from individuals young and old and organizations from around San Diego County on all aspects of the Iraq War/Occupation and peace and nonviolence in general. Each contributor to the Peace Wall is responsible for putting up and taking down their sections.
If you would like to have your wall listed in the March 18 Activists Directory contact Kelly King's email: Kelly_King_(at thingie)hotmail(speck)com
Sections of wall do not have to reflect peaceful subject matter. All peace and justice issues are welcome. For example, Individuals or groups are creating sections of wall on the following topics:
- Picasso's Guernica adapted to Iraq
- Children and Nonviolence
- The Death Penalty
- Protest at the White House; add your message of protest to a mural of the White house
- San Diego Peace Candidates and the Peace Score Card (voting history of Congress Members on the war)
- Picasso's Child with a Dove
- Diego Rivera's La Siesta
- Genocide-Rwanda and Sudan
Suggestions for wall topics:
- Immigration/ The Border
- Free Trade/Human Rights
- Civil-Rights and the War, including the "Un-Patriot Act"
- Repeal of the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" Policy in the Military
- Reproductive justice
- Labor and the Peace Movement (or Women and the Peace Movement or the Students As a Peace Movement, etc.)
- Defense Budget Issues - the Cost of the War
- How Parents Opt Out of the Provisions of the "No Child Left behind Act"
- Comparison of Exit Strategies
- History of the Peace Movement
The Peace Wall is a Project of SDCPJ and the San Diego Puppet Insurgency. For More information or for Help creating and building your section of the Peace Wall contact Antonia at Antonia(whatchmacallit)davisworld(dit)com.
For ideas on how to easily make a section of wall from a cardboard box, see below.
Use a large box with a wide base so it can easily stand on it's own and provides you with 4 working surfaces A box with little depth can be cut to open out "theater style" The open "doors" will keep the box from falling over. A box can also be cut to open like a book. the "covers" open holding the display upright. Cardboard pages can be added for more display surface and further stability.
