In case you need reminding...
"Protest Pinup", perchance..?
Got that bit right.
A canny statement!
As if Mill Road's not congested enough already.
Road protest #1
Road protest #2
Road protest #3
Road protest #4
Metal on metal #1
Metal on metal #2
Metal on metal #3
...Attracts attention of passers by!
How the whole installation looked.
On Saturday as well as a small but significant group of protestors, there were also some musicians providing all present with some upbeat Folk sounds. There seemed to be an unofficially designated protest dog present too, who very calmly sat through the whole event with a crossed out trolley sticker upon their back, allowing children and adults to pet them while they looked on at all the Humans in bemusement.
It was fun to see some very creative activism going on, which transformed a rather oppressive looking building contractor's steel mesh fence into a community artwork with a very clear overall message:
No Tescos On Mill Road!
I have also been told told that as if by magick, some pink paint has 'spontaneously' appeared today (Monday 17/08/2009) all over the front of the building. If anyone has pictures of this other 'artwork', please post them here as a comment to this article.
