Tank Bookmobile Is a Weapon of Mass Instruction

Raul Lemesoff converted a 1979 Ford Falcon into an open air bookmobile. He drives it around Buenos Aires, offering books to anyone who wants them. The Weapon of Mass Instruction, as Lemesoff calls it, promotes “peace through literature.”

Some of you may know that the Ford Falcon was the vehicle of choice for the death squads of the military regime of Argentina from 1976 - 1983. Lemesoff's choice of the Falcon is symbolic as it still represents oppression for many Argentinians.
