Art became protest last week when guerilla graffiti collective Indecline took to the streets of Hollywood for a stealth Black Lives Matter action. Now, you can watch how they did it.
Sputnik News reports that anonymous artists used epoxy to affix name placards honoring eight Black people who have been killed by police: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Oscar Grant, Freddie Gray, Kimani Gray, Dontre Hamilton, Tamir Rice and Aiyana Stanley-Jones. The group posted the video, “#BlackLivesMatter: Hollywood,” on their website.
Social media posts confirm that the placards have since been removed:

No word on any charges filed, but in California, vandalism carries a possible punishment of up to one year in county jail and a fine of $10,000, depending on the cost of the damages.
A spokesperson for the group let Sputnik in on plans for their next action: “[We] are currently in the preproduction phases on something much more elaborate pertaining to Donald Trump.”
