Attack on train station avenges graffiter

From Act for Freedom!, Athens, Greece, by Anarchists

The destruction of a train station for the death of a 20years old graffiter

Gray city and hazy trains go around the urban metropolis of Athens, but in this city there are individuals and groups who can not stand this daily repetition and choose to express themselves on its gray and rotten walls and train sheets, choosing a greater risk to send their message throughout the city. Graffiti has not always been accepted by society at large and the state consider it as an enemy that soils what they want clean for a European model of the city. This is clear from the verbal attack of a “respectable” citizen of the so-called “ruffianoi” who will threat you by calling the cops and many times use physical violence.

by Sergio Jiménez

With respect to how she defines her art, she points out that she makes what 'springs from her' and what carries 'the pure and hard sentiment from the streets', be it 'painting a graffiti as vandalism or making the prettiest mural in the whole world', because 'you can't limit what the heart and mind demands'.

From AMW

Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners in Tangerang and Bekasi, Indonesia

On April 9th, 2020, three of our comrades were arrested and convicted of a heavy crime for spraying several graffiti that say “_sudah krisis, saatnya membakar_” (there’s a crisis already, time to burn) and “_melawan atau mati konyol_” (fight or perish). What is actually a voice of rightful citizens is considered a crime of provocation. Their art is a valid criticisms toward the government’s lack of integrity in mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic and just a petty crime at most.

Art & Anarchy 2020

Art & Anarchy 2020

From Montreal Counter-information

The twenty-first edition of the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair has to look radically different this year, but we’re striving for as much connection across distance as we can during our daylong gathering on Sunday, May 17, 2020. To that end, rather than our usual Art and Anarchy exhibit in the physical bookfair space, we’re calling on people to physically share anarchistic art and banners on the streets of cities across the globe. It’s a way of embodying our love and solidarity for each other, and also illustrating quite literally that we’re still here, that anarchism is still alive and well.
