Help Faith47 Save South African Graffiti!

"Cape Town, South Africa graffiti and fine artist Faith47 is always an advocate for the people and artists. She writes, “We are facing a new anti-graffiti by-law in Cape Town, which takes away the house owners rights to give permission for any artworks on their walls besides a house number."


"The new, proposed graffiti by-law makes no distinction between vandalism and public art that is done with the permission of the owner of the property. Please can you assist us in our efforts to amend this by-law by signing the petition and forwarding it on, as we need to present it to the council during the public participation process. Thank you..." Here is the link to the two points in the by-law that they would like to amend: Click Here to view. Sign the petition, its nice to see that so-called "vandals" are actually trying to beautify not destroy, and here is your chance to help allow that creative freedom to continue. I know we did. Signature #881 was me...
