War on Trial

Director: David Bradbury
Australia, 2016, 52 mins

After pedaling across an airport tarmac on a red tricycle, Bryan Law, accompanied by Graeme Dunstan, attacked a military helicopter with a mattock.  This protest, in the tradition of peacemakers to “beat swords into ploughshares,” led to their arrest.  Facing a long sentence but encouraged by supporters and socially networked friends around the world, Dunstan decided to put the government and the helicopter on trial.  War on Trial documents this story of peacemaking in an era of perpetual war in the belief that “Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”
