Contrubute to Our "Graffiti And Street Art Arrest Map" - First One Is New York City

nygrafarrests.jpgSo this morning we started to build the map of the specific locations in New York where people have been arrested for graffiti or street art. We should have it integrated into the site soon. Send in the location (street intersection is fine) and a three or four line story about it and we'll pin it to the map. We're interested to see where the highest concentration of graf related arrests are in the city.

You can check out the map as it grows by clicking here.

Zonenkinder on Tookie

"when we heard of schwarzeneggers negative decision yesterday at night we were very sad. my partner SMAN (ZONENKINDER) angrily painted a streetart piece in memory of stanley williams, which we immediately put out in the streets. i just wrote down my
thoughts which i want to tell you..


i?m convinced that one of our deep inner feeling is the compassion /sympathy to and interest in other human beings (emerging in situations like this one). Nevertheless we shouldn?t let us be manipulated by the NONSTOP influence of the craving for sensation of the massmedia culture. by showing us such unbelievable cruelty like the "legal" killing of human beings by their own state they want us to be part of a passive and indifferent audience, feeling hopeless and alone. They want us to be afflicted by our helplessness and dejectedness keeping us down and feel like slaves although we just want to feel like and be treated like human beings. So let us feel
our deep regret and sympathy for Stanley Williams without getting hopeless and discouraged!
