S11 Graffiti
Graffiti has always been a mode of expression for ideas outside of the mainstream. In Melbourne September 11 - 13, 2000 outside the World Economic Forum meeting in the Crown Casino, huge numbers used chalk and paint to tell the world why they were there, and what was going on. As one piece said, "I can't afford to buy off the media, so I buy paint".
Changed the capitalisation so as to make for easier reading, but haven't changed spelling – Joe Carolan (SWO Waikato).
