anti war graffiti

RIP Carrie Fisher. You were an awesome woman who fought the stigma surrounding mental illness, a hero to so many of us at an early age. A real-life Rebel Alliance is needed now to combat capitalism and fascism, and I know I’m not alone in saying that Star Wars – particularly Carrie’s Leia – played a small part in inspiring me to revolutionary ideals. May the Force be with you, Carrie, and may a Rebel Alliance form in the years to come.

To mark the release of the ‘Chilcot Inquiry’ into the US led War on Iraq, here’s some pics of the March 2003 anti-war graffiti attack on the Sydney Opera House.

The two vandals David Burgess and Will Saunders were later convicted of malicious damage and sentenced to nine months’ periodic detention. They were also ordered to pay $151,000 to the Opera House fund for its cleaning bill.
