The issue (as I see it) is the intolerant and overbearing nature of a stupid law prohibiting murals on buildings.
I am for a relatively free country where people don't have to bow and scrape before authority, in this case getting around stupid codes by making plywood signs that they don't want, then possibly running into more code violations for that. Nonsense.
It's a question of judgement, obviously we need to control some of the chaos. The anti-commercial mural law goes too far for my tastes.
What do we want? More freedom of expression!
When do we want it? Now!
