Modern Tiananmen Square Street Mural

Using iconic imagery from the Tiananmen Square incident in 1989, A.SignL from the Captain Borderline crew recently completed this mural in Cologne, Germany to protest human rights violations in modern China. The tank is made up of all types of cheap consumer goods "Made in China" and the man standing in its way is holding a bag that says "Fair Trade." The piece was a collaboration with Amnesty International and Color Revolution.
