Mad Graffiti Week Iran

Source: United For Iran

Activists and artists around the world from Egypt to Indonesia, Sweden to Washington, D.C. have been participating this month in the street art campaign Mad Graffiti Week Iran to raise awareness about the serious human rights violations that continue to take place in Iran. People are using artwork on shirts, posters, signs, walls, sidewalks, and the sides of their own cars to call for the release of political prisoners, gender equality, democratic reform, and an end to executions in Iran. Join them and stay legal! You can use chalk paint!

Read this great blog from a man in Jakarta, Indonesia about his participation in the graffiti week. He and his daughter spray-painted the stencil “Freedom” (Azadi in Farsi) on their wall.

United4Iran urges you and your community to participate in this extraordinary effort to show your solidarity with Iranians! The campaign is continuing through June and beyond. The best part is that individuals from all walks of life can participate! Get your friends, children, and their school involved in this creative form of human rights education and awareness raising!
