Anarchist website Indecline, which sells items such as bandana’s printed with “no gods, no masters,” and ninja masks emblazoned with “legalize crime,” posted the short film of the street art being laid down on Wednesday. The names were installed on Saturday.
The anonymous artists used Scotch Weld Epoxy Adhesive, which “provides the highest shear, peel, impact, vibration and fatigue resistance in the Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive family,” according to the corporate website online description.
Those honored with stars include Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Oscar Grant, Kimani Gray, and Aiyana Stanley-Jones. The video concludes with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter and their website address.
It is unclear if the names have been removed or if the Los Angeles Police Department will pursue the activists for vandalism.
We reached out to Indecline who informed us that, as far as they know, the names are still in place, however, black spray paint had been used to cross out the name of Michael Brown Jr.
“We haven't discussed a plan in regards to returning for more, but are currently in the pre-production phases on something much more elaborate pertaining to Donald Trump,” a spokesperson for Indecline told Sputnik News.
