We Are Change Remind Karl Rove He Will Be Held Accountable

November 18, 2008

We Are Change Buffalo greeted Karl Rove and Wesley Clark during an appearance at the University of Buffalo. While a Peace & Justice Accountability group did interrupt Rove’s speech, the venue was a bit large for anyone in the crowd to be understood or heard. Buffalo CHANGE instead had words with the former presidential advisor on his way to the vehicle.

Anti-war veterans deploy 4,171 toy soldiers at gas station

David Edwards and Muriel Kane
Published: Monday November 17, 2008

In a daring guerrilla raid earlier this fall, members of the Los Angeles chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) infiltrated a local gas station to deploy a battalion of 4171 toy soldiers, together with a sign reading, “Price of Gas: 4171 U.S. Soldiers.”

The project was initiated by designer Andrew Wilcox, who served as art director, and photographer and former marine Jonas Lara. According to Wilcox, it also involved “6 Iraq War Veterans who wish to remain anonymous.”

A video of the action, carried out in the early morning hours of October 11, has now been posted on YouTube and Digg and featured at the IVAW website and on several blogs.

One blog commented approvingly, “There are many reasons this campaign succeeds. It begins with IVAW’s authority on the matter. These aren’t just a bunch of liberal college kids. … They served the country; they saw the flaws and inequities first-hand, from the inside or the front lines. Then they spoke out—to dramatic effect.

However, the video is also gaining notice from right-wing sites, one of which suggested caustically, “These wannabe jihadists are members of the moonbat cult Iraq Veterans Against the War. Here they put their military skills to use as best they are able by arranging toy soldiers in front of gas pumps to express their dog-eared and cretinous motto, No War for Oil. Good thing these clowns aren’t over in Iraq, where they could get themselves and (more importantly) real soldiers hurt.”

This video is from IVAW.org, posted Nov. 11, 2008.
