The prototype Wearpeace logos have finally been cast in gun metal. Last friday we went to the foundry to see the process. We were accompanied by a film crew from Crocodile Media who were making a Dispatches documentary for Channel 4 about Guns.

We have started to cut up the guns obtained by the police. This was the barrel of a sawn off shotgun that was confiscated by Manchester Police Force. The gun was brought to the university workshop and cut into pieces. We are now working with a foundry so that they can melt down the guns to create WearPeace badges.
