Banksy‘s donation to anti-arms
ANONYMOUS street artist Banksy has donated £205,000 from the sale of a protest piece to anti-arms campaigners.
The artwork, Civilian Drone Strike, was on display at the Stop The Arms Fair art exhibition in east London.
It depicts drones destroying a cartoon image of a house, while a child and her dog look on in distress.
The exhibition was held alongside the world’s largest arms fair, the Defence And Security Equipment International. Both exhibitions closed on Friday.
Andrew Smith from the Campaign Against Arms Trade said the money would be used “to ensure we mobilise even more people against the next arms fair, so that we can stop it from happening”.
