"It's Forbidden To Forbid", a new mural by Hyuro in Niort, France

Our friend Hyuro just got back from France where she was invited to paint a large mural somewhere on the streets of Niort for Le 4eme Mur Festival.
The piece is entitled "Il Est Interdit D'interdire" (It's Forbidden To Forbid).
"This wall doesn’t speak solely through context, but it does speak about our time. It tells of human beings, immigrants or refugees alike, any person who for any number of reasons feels the need to move somewhere else. It speaks of our innate indifference to distance and our lack of interest for nameless and faceless people. It speaks to the internal contradiction between principles, rights, and our own self interests." --Hyuro
