Residents of London borough Haringey protest the removal of Bansky’s “Slave Labour” mural from their neighborhood to be sold at a Miami art auction for between $500k and $700k. See the mural, learn more about the pride and inspiration it brought to Haringeyers and about the controversy surrounding its abduction at The Times.


A corporation appropriates political anarchist art & sells it to a member of the affluent class. This not only denies the public from seeing it, but the corporation makes a profit by exploiting the people involved.The irony cannot be adequately plumbed.
