A very timely graffito

I found this "urban fresco" under a bridge on a pretty concealed street in the 13th arrondissement. It must be fairly new as the topic is evidently current... That's all I'll say about the subject.

  1. I wish i could read what the artist wrote above the bloody flags. I DO see what the City wrote above it, but it didn't seem to matter :-)

    1. Michael, as far I my eyes can read, it's written : "14 juillet 2014, l'armée française défile au lieu de sauver la Palestine"....

  3. Great find and capture. Street art often hits the nail on the head. Very poignant image.

  4. Yes—very timely, Eric. I imagine that when they made that "defense d'afficher" law back in 1881, they couldn't even imagine graffiti like this.

    1. Yes, I think so too. How absurd is it to proclaim that it is forbidden to write or post on a specific wall, knowing that there is no way to enforce such a law!
