Street Art and the War on Terror: How the world's best graffiti artists said no to the Iraq war

by Xavier A. Tapies - £24.99  Korero Books LLP (Rebellion Books Ltd) (2007)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780955339882 | ISBN 10: 095533988x

When Bush and Blair ignored opposition from their electorates, and the UN, and launched the War on Iraq, they wrapped it up as a "War on Terror" in an attempt to conflate the attacks on the World Trade Centre in NYC and Saddam Hussein's non-existent "weapons of mass destruction." Public opinion, despite a collaborative media that mostly accepted the Bush/Blair line unquestionningly, was not fooled.
 
Millions around the world turned out to demonstrate. Suddenly street art acquired a new, visceral significance as the voice of democratic opposition, expressing the views of millions, without censorship from media barons.
 
It is this movement which Street Art and the War on Terror documents. Brilliantly executed, provocative and global, the work of the artists in these pages speaks directly to anyone who opposed the illegal war on Iraq.
