Light Rider at Antonplatz, Weißensee

GRLG joined in to support the protest against the local “Thor Steinar” store in Weißensee, selling ugly nazi wear. We set up blitzag to write on a decent wall close to the store.  A lot of people were tagging, some of them very talented writers. Thanks to all who joined in. Additional infos regarding the brand “Thor Steinar” on wikipedia. German language infos are available here.

Let’s hope the “Thor Steinar” store (and all the others) will be history soon. More infos in german language on the website of the group “Weißensee gegen rechts”.
