Subject:   [GlobalRevolutionMedia] Re: Flyer / Newspaper / Sticker Bombing
 

been reading more on the legality of chalk. (ha!)... it became an

issue in 2007 as police were stepping up their anti-vandal activities

or whatever and told the parents of a 6 year old girl in park slope

they faced a 300 dollar fine if they didn't clean up their daughter's

chalk drawings on their stoop. It may remain somewhat of a grey area

but I have a friend who sticker bombs, was recently arrested (this was

just 2 months ago) and while in the holding cell, met a fellow street

artist who was in their for drawing faces on the street in chalk. And

we know a girl was arrested for chalking in zucotti the other day

(without being read her rights, I'm told) So just be careful please.

 

Love
