inspired by helicopter gunship ploughshares action undertaken by Graeme Dunstan & Bryan Law Talisman Sabre 2011 Trial began in August 19th 2013

Outside the court other brothers & sisters in jeopardy, for peace & justice sake, are held up Edward Snowden, Sarah Harrison, Julian Assange, Saeed Ohmagh, David Miranda, Namir,Glenn Greenwald, Bradley Manning.

The dead are evoked, Graeme Dunstan's ploughshares partner Bryan Law R.I.P. is remebered & all the victims of helicopter gunships from collateral murder http://collateralmurder.com/ of the innocents on the streets of Baghdad to Vietnam to Afghanistan to El Salvador to Guatamela to East Timor to Sri Lanka, the list of locations is endless.

This weapon system, by its very nature, is an idiscriminate killing machine. Dress it up in Hollywood,advertising spin & media hype, - call it Tiger, Black Hawk, Cobra., Call it Apache, & name it after empire's historic victims, it will never take the stench of massacre away.It has cut down working people & children from the paddy fields of Vietnam to downtown Mogadishu - name it whatever it is what it is .It needs to be truly named for what it is and it needs to be disarmed.

Thank you Bryan R.I.P. Thank you Graeme.
Thank you Bradley Manning facing sentence today.
For swords into ploughshares, the hammer has to fall.
