SAAB Microwave Becoming² Ploughshares
June 26 juni, 2008
Ulla Røder and Per Herngren climbed over the fence at SAAB Microwave’s test range at Mölndal, Sweden on June 24 and 26, 2008, and planted fig trees in the area around the factory. Using blacksmith hammers, they started to disarm military radar and parts of the test range. They spoke to workers and guards about their intent until police arrived and arrested them half an hour later. The ploughshares action were a cooperation between the ploughshares group and Deleuze philosophers from Gothenburg University in Sweden. They were during one day plugged into each other.
