The Writing on the Wall - Redfern Style

Got this in an email from the same listerv as Mr. Jacques from yesterday's post. In case you can't read it clearly, it says: "If you voted Liberal...I will hunt you down....and KILL YOU...I don't know where you live but I'm very good @ research."

In the words of Bobby Bannerjee who sent it out:

the graffiti in the pic was spotted just after our elections on a wall in redfern, an innercity aboriginal 'ghetto' in sydney. redfern is also the
birthplace of the aboriginal land rights movement in australia. and as you may know 'liberal' here has the opposite connotation than its use in the states but basically they're the same bunch of fascist thugs that run this country as well.

'Nuff said.

Not the most charitable way of dealing with the Australian swing to the right but I must admit I am feeling it too. Also brings to mind something Jello Biafra once said about graffiti being the last bastion of free speech...
