Graffiti: a political tool

Graffiti is not only about painting city walls, it is also about giving political messages. Here in Bogotá it is the voice of Latin American people who have always suffered and who are continuing to suffer; a fight for survival from the period of Spanish colonisation to today’s global capitalist era. The lands where the gap between the richest and the poorest is the highest, where even the natural sources like water, air, that belong to the people need to be protected from being exploited by corporates and sold again to people. Despite all this, people who look happy and optimist; 100 % Latin Power, maybe it’s because the ones who suffer the most need to be the strongest.
