En af de ting han med det samme lagde mærke til var, at der ikke var noget som helst der lignede "street art" eller "graffiti", så der var godt grundlag for en pædagogisk indsats: 32 soldater -en hver døde dansker i Afghanistan krigen- kom i aktion.

A tribute to the ideology behind the flower Power movement. Flower power was a slogan used by hippies during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of non-violence ideology.

About me:Pink Army is an international street-art projekt against war. There are approximately. 15 different departments, and some independents scattered across Europe and North America
Pink Army communicates with the public by leaving little pink plastic soldiers in the streets and photos in MySpace profiles. For this purpose The Pink Army street-artists (or Generals) take pictures and short movies of the actions, which in Pink Army called invasions. Take a look here!
Pink is the complementary colour of military green. Pink is a very conspicuous and prominent colour, as can be seen from far away. The colour is therefore in marked contrast to the army green camouflage colour, and is probably the least war-related colour available. Viva La Pink Revolution. Pink is by the way the colour of romance, and a childish colour as well.
