Photos/Video: Chewstick “Peace” Mural Painting

December 2, 2012

Chewstick members and supporters gathered yesterday [Dec 1] for the painting of a 12x30ft Peace mural on the exterior Court Street wall of their facility in North Hamilton. The theme of Peace was chosen due to the ongoing challenges with gun violence in Bermuda as well as the global acts of war and violence.

Chewstick Founder Gavin Smith said: “One of the most important ways to change the enviornment and the climate is to bring positive messages, and this wall is full of positive messages from all different generations.”

Some of the messages painted on the mural include “truth, love and peace” — “live, life, love, peace” — “we must be the change we want to see in the world,” as well as some with a distinctively Bermudian flavour such as “guns are mug.”

    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will
    of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil
    purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while
    the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness
    by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men
    with rifles”.
