As Occupiers, we love to see people taking initiative in transforming public spaces—even if doing so requires breaking some rules. So naturally we were excited to hear that the prolific street artist Banksy was visiting our home city of New York!
Then on the 4th day of his tour while visiting the neighborhood of Bushwick (Brooklyn), he did this:
Banksy, we're honored to see you paying homage to our movement by defacing our private property. You inspire as as someone who is both tasteful, and a rebel. You bring fine art to the masses where they exist rather than locking it away in an art gallery. Your work will brighten up our communities for years to come. Please keep doing what you do.
It's also worth mentioning that this isn't the first time someone has vandalized Bushwick in our honor!
