Coverage

Columbus, Ohio, USA

Description

This mural shows five large notebook pages, with handstyle writing on them. They read "A Letter From The People...
"Fist And Foremost, Rest In Peace George Floyd And All Other Souls That Have Died Unjustly Under The Hands Of THe Government. It Is A Tragedy And We Expect Our Gov To Handle It And Not Let Us Down Like The Many Times You Already Have, Not Just Here In This Country. You Brong Tyranny And Oppression All Over The World And You Flash Propaganda And Lies In Our Face To Make Them Look Like Enemies. You Take Their Opium And You Feed It To Our People As "Medicine." You Take Our Tax $ And You Murder Us And Then You Take Our Tax $ Again To Cover The Lawsuits Settlement...And AQUIT THE MURDERER... There's Only One Kind. Mankind... Love Is Love. We Shall Overcome.
"HOPE. PEACE BE UPON YOU."
"SAY THEIR NAMES"
"Stand For Something Fall For Nothing"
"Violence feeds violence. It's Okay To Be Sad, But Don't Despair, There's Always Hope."

Above the painted pages is a purple background. Along the bottoms is a red background. Someone has written in red spray-paint "The Red Represents Blood Shed" and "Fuck The System!" and "And Fuck A Microchip!" The latter message is written one one of the painted pages.

To the left of the mural is a stencil portrait of George Floyd. Purple graffiti around the portrait reads "RIP George Floyd. You Will Not Die In Vain."

Below the graffiti is a gray outline fist.

From the contributor: "My wife and I went downtown to photograph the protest art as we knew that it would not last (for a variety of reasons). The military was still on the streets, a curfew was still in place, and police were still assaulting innocent protestors. Columbus is the capitol of Ohio, so much of this was around the capitol building."
