Pigeon Hits Garland Street in Bangor with a Message
You won't find any birds with I-Heart-Bangor shirts in Pigeon's latest wheatpasting on Garland Street. Using a boarded up house as his canvas, the graffiti artist recently wheatpasted a collection of pieces on the theme "Las Fronteras son cicatrices en la Tierra" (The borders are scars on the earth). The images are tied together with the following text wheatpasted onto the front door of the abandoned duplex:
"In an age when the destruction of food is no longer BLASPHEMOUS; When BLEACH is poured over contractor bags full of FOOD so that the HOMELESS don't mess up NYC's prissy side walks; When millions of dollars in crops are left to ROT in the fields in Georgia because we deported the workforce that feeds us; When the Federal government orders the destruction of 3 billion ORANGES a year; We shoot a kid DEAD for throwing a few ROCKS at border patrol agents..."
