Weapons of Mass Distraction (10 years on)


"weapons of mass distraction" animated flyer for the 'stop the war coalition' protest, 15th february 2003, glasgow green"

To mark the 10 year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, Itchy Pixel takes another look at the interactive flyer (Weapons of Mass Distraction) it produced to publicise the ‘Stop the War Coalition‘ protest held in Glasgow.

The protest, one of many across the UK (and the world) on the 15th of February 2003, formed part of what is claimed to be the largest public demonstration in British history.

A decade on; the animation looks dated, and it’s clear that the alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction used to justify an invasion to the United Nations and the British Parliament, never existed.
