The People Speak: Free Speech Not Hate Speech on SF Transit
Bay Area artists say no to Islam-bashing hate speech on local buses.
A week ago, the well-known hate group, "The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)" led by Pamela Geller, posted the Islamophobic ad pictured here on San Francisco buses. After MUNI announced that it would not remove the ads, despite community pressure, someone took matters into their own hands and modified one of the ads as shown here. Bravo to the artists, whoever you are! And we hope for many more such grassroots efforts.
