We received the following message from Cape Town, South Africa:
“We are facing a new anti-graffiti by-law in Cape Town which takes away the house owners rights to give permission for any artworks on their walls besides a house number.
The new, proposed graffiti by-law makes no distinction between vandalism and public art that is done with the permission of the owner of the property.
Please can you assist us in our efforts to amend this by-law by signing the petition and forwarding it on…
As we need to present it to the council during the public participation process.
Thank you, here is the link and below are the details of the two points in the by-law that we would like to amend.
