Mass clean-up follows holiday graffiti spate
By Hamish McNeilly
A mass clean-up is under way to rid Dunedin of graffiti after a spate of tagging during the Christmas break. Keep Dunedin Beautiful co-ordinator Darlene Thomson said there had been a “lot of complaints” since Christmas, and Taskforce Green workers had removed much of the reported graffiti.

Dealing with tagging
• Report incidents to police.
• Take a photograph of the graffiti for police records.
• Remove it as soon as possible so the tagger does not get street credit for their work; graffiti is also easier to remove.
• Plant creeping vines or trees to eliminate wall space and protect fences.
• Good lighting will discourage offenders.

First half decent dissent

farry grafitti-2

Sure I don’t agree with it, I think they are full of ****, but I do like the fact that someone has finally done something half visually engaging. I’m guessing it’s not from the usual sources within the StS, they’ve proved time and time again that graphic design and political dissent is not their forte.

I’ll leave it to you all to discuss the message, as of course they have no idea what they are talking about.
