Street Art & Graffiti…
As Weapons Of Mass Protest!

For millions of years, humans have used graffiti as a way of communicating. It has also been used as a weapon for social justice. All over the world, people feel the need to get whatever they want off of their chest by putting some form of art onto walls. No matter where I have travelled, I have seen all sorts of street art. Sometimes it’s a very artistic piece, or maybe it’s just spray painted words. Whatever the case may be, individuals feel empowered to voice their thoughts through graffiti, especially as an instrument of protest. Check this gallery of real art in the place that matters to us all, the streets! Graffiti should not be a crime when corporations robbing the people and mother nature is legal!
