Art-Activists Plan To Entomb H&K In Concrete

A group of performance artists and activists has come up with a bold plan to rid the world of the scourge of Heckler & Koch weapons – to seal the factory inside a concrete sarcophagus. Just as a the damaged nuclear reactor at Chernobyl was encased in concrete to protect the world from radioactive emissions, so the Zentrum für Politische Schönheit (Centre for Political Beauty) intends to seal off Heckler & Koch’s main factory in Germany in order to prevent its harmful products from escaping and causing further loss of life.


The Zentrum für Politische Schönheit is now seeking crowd-funding to fly a helicopter over the H&K factory and drop a sand-cement mixture onto it – the first stage in their ambitious plan.

Heckler & Koch also has an industrial unit in Nottingham, which is used to manufacture and distribute automatic weapons. In order to save lives it may also be necessary to bury the Nottingham facility in concrete.
