PM loves a bit of art mixed in a cocktail of activism . PM would supply the little coloured umbrellas, and the bendy straws…. for free, for ever and ever, amen. If only it would mean that civil disobedience and activism would utilise the power of satire, art and humour more freely. Aunty Panga has been heard saying on numerous occasions “activism does not have to be ugly”. PM love – loves the below work. In 2010, Voina artists painted a massive penis on a drawbridge. When the drawbridge was raised, a big erect cock faced the building that houses Russia’s main domestic security agency. What a BEAUT!
