Title

Pig Pen and Other Graffiti at City Hall Park

Coverage

City Hall Park, New York City, NY, USA

Description

Graffiti on a police box and signs on a fence. Includes "Pig Pen," a badge-shaped sticker with an insignia and "Fuck 12 City of New York." The sign has "Solidarity Vibes 4 y'all! South Gate Defenders," and "Art is a powerful werapon. Black Music Especially."

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.
