Kabul (Afghanistan), Feb 20 (ANI): Activists in Afghanistan are speaking out against corruption and spreading messages of peace and social justice with paintings, many painted on concrete blast walls that were erected to ward off militant bombs. The activists call themselves the 'Artlords,’ as opposed to the warlords and drug lords who had brought so much strife and misery to Afghanistan, and say their art is a tool for social change. Blast walls had gone up along Kabul's streets over the years to match a tide of violence as Taliban and other militants battle the government and U.S.-led forces, nearly 17 years after Afghanistan's latest phase of war began.
