Guerilla advertising war scene! Seven members from the Iraq Veterans Against the War’s (IVAW) LA Chapter active on a early morning action on October 11th, placing 4,200 miniature soldiers around a gas station along with posters declaring “The Price of Gas: 4171 US SOLDIERS”.

Two of the participants in the Operation W.A.N.T. (We Are Not Toys), designer Andrew Wilcox and photographer Jonas Lara, said their goal was to show average Americans what 4,171 US Soldiers looks like and to connect the deaths of US troops to this country’s dependence on foreign oil.
