Banksy #WithSyria

Banksy #WithSyria

An update on the Banksy website, in relation to the recent happenings in Syria:

On the 6th March 2011 in the Syrian town of Daraa, fifteen children were arrested and tortured for painting anti-authoritarian graffiti. The protests that followed their detention led to an outbreak of violence across the country that would see a domestic uprising transform into a civil war displacing 9.3 million people from their homes.

The piece is a rework of his classic “Balloon Girl” and it marks the third anniversary of the ongoing conflict in Syria. The reworked image will help to promote #withsyria, a campaign which is looking to rally support for victims of the conflict.
