Adoro isto!

That's such a shame. I feel like de-facing the guy who did it.

JM said...

@Dina: Judging from the tags I guess it was more than one guy!...

I guess someone thought they were funny. It seems this happens everywhere. I don't understand why some people find the need to ruin something beautiful.

Sharon said...

I'll never understand why someone would do this to a public work of art.

It is teenagers-painters, they are the same everywhere.
I think it is funny. This addition is very much cooling the revolutionary impulse (I am afraid of revolutions, know how they end for the country).

Defacing is always stupid and it is never excusable, but that mural is so silly and bombastic...

Crude and destructive.The struggle it represents is, sadly, in disfavor in my country these days. You don't have Tea Party wall scrawlers in Portugal, do you?

Some people need to get a life.

Shame they can't go find their own wall to paint on.

Lack of imagination.

The mural is one kind of political statement and I suppose the graffiti is another.
