    CND logo origins.

    Did you know that the Mercedes logo is an ancient symbol for a wheel, it means go or war, Mercedes is the biggest weapons plant on the face of the planet.
    The CND logo is w wheel with with a brake, or an unbalanced wheel, it means stop or peace.
    Once upon a time there where no traffic lights of coloured paint, so these internationally recognisable symbols were used in monochrome.
    The CND logo has bbe in use since long before nuclear was invented.
    At one time in a confrontational situation such as a battle when the two sides were separated by some distance a representative of each side would gesture with arms up and to the sides like the Mercedes logo (war) or hands to the sides palms forward peace.
    Not a lot of people know that.
    The Nazi war machine could roll out the tanks, and massive weaponry by the end of next week.
    There is a fashion of people covering their vw markings, sticky tape, so we know which are our and which are theirs.
    If back lights get get broken during protests it is possible to replace them with silly caravan lights and they still go through the MOT.

    Cover it people...

    peace.

    The link is perhaps where the letters CND originated but it is clearly an unbalanced wheel, the Mercedes logo is the opposite.
    Both along with the swasticker appear in drawings thousands of years old.

    Well there are protesters doing backlights round our way, cover your vw markings and they don't do your back lights.

    Tweet this round the globe.

    Peace.

    Nothing to do with ford.
    Just the Nazi wagons, just the back lights.
    Peaceful direct action.

    Not the other German cars don't try to swallow more than we can chew.
    They still go through the MOT, they just look stupid, the price drops and the poor get to drive cheap cars with silly back lights.

    Peace.

    In fact if you look at the pictures in the morman book there is one of a war scene, if you notice the man on the castle wall he is signaling war.
    There is another picture of a man signaling peace in a peaceful scene.

    Don't have a lot of time for CND, years ago a guy I used to come into contact with regularly was an area organiser for CND, he was on 500 a week (then!) and a free house from Hackney Council.


    Totally destroyed any credibility they may have had in my eyes
