Title

Graffiti on Surrogate Court Building Statues

Coverage

31 Chamber Street, NY, NY 10007, USA

Description

Graffiti covers the side of the New York City Surrogate Court Building and three statues. The figural statues have red tape covering their eyes and mouth. Graffiti includes "Black Lives Matter ACAB," "White Silence = Violence," "No Justice No Peace," "Wonder What A Cop Taist Like," "Fuck 12," "FTP," "'Good Cops' Don't Exist,""We Are Trayvon Martin," "NYPD SMD," the anarchist A, and pig characters.

These were part of a month-long protest encampment at New York City's City Hall Park Area, organized by Vocal New York. The protesters lived and slept in front of the mayor office for one month, demanding that 1 billion dollars be removed from the New York City Police Department annual budget. During that month (June 22 - July 22, 2020) protesters defaced buildings, sidewalks, and subway entrances. Graffiti was a tool for their messages.
