The City of Cape Town is the world design capital 2014, yet the new bylaws that have been instituted are restricting and policing non-violent ‘crime’, like Street Art, skateboarding, busking, dogs barking, climbing trees and washing cars in public.

A large cleanup recently took place and Cape Town lost many historical pieces during that time.
One specific painting that was painted over was the iconic ‘FREE MANDELA’ slogan on the vibracrete wall of the cemetery on Anzio Rd , Observatory.

The ones who painted this wall risked their lives in a very dangerous period for South Africa, so if you want to help Faith47 save this iconic wall, please sign the petition right HERE
