Immigrant artist Israel Hernandez was murdered by the police last month for writing graffiti. September 6th, one month since his passing we will decorate the world with illegal art in celebration of his life, and against the any and all brutality at the hands of the state.
Israel Hernandez was 18 years old when he was tased to death last month by the police. An immigrant from Colombia and an award-winning artist, he was also a graffiti writer who went by the name Reefa. September 6th will mark one month since his tragic passing, and we intend to mark this day with a call to action:
September 6th, this Friday, adorn every wall with Reefa's name, transform the world around us through unsanctioned art into one that celebrates Reefa's life and one that will not tolerate any more brutality at the hands of the state.
The ruling class would like to see illegal artists scared off the streets through incidents like this, let them see the reverse! Reclaim the walls, Friday and every day!
