Brad Will/((i)) Vive Stencil

A call has been put out to artists across the world to print, cut, and paint this stencil honoring NYC Indymedia journalist Brad Will and the embattled peoples of Oaxaca, Mexico

Will was recently shot and killed by plain clothes police in Oaxaca, while video documenting the ongoing uprising in that city. Several other protesters died too, and Pres. Fox called in the Federales to end the popular occupation of the city center.

Go to NYC Indymedia for full coverage of the ongoing struggles of the peoples of Oaxaca.

6,000+ Stencils on Stencil Archive

My bro Podska just sent me a batch of stencil pics from the EU, four of which were from Hungary (HU). Perfect timing!

The first stencil photo I took in 1995 was in Budapest. For number 6,000, I posted some new B'Pest stencil pics. Thanks, bro.

Pod also sent me a pic from Romania, and a few from Germany.

Maya sent me some good stuff that she's photographed on the other side of Europe. Here are some from Devir in Portugal, Dolk in Spain, eime in Portugal, and a few new Faile flicks from Spain.

Code subitted some fresh UK stencils he made, along with my first one from India.

Got a few from San Francisco: one on Valencia Street and another at Geary at Fillmore.

From the USA, here's another batch of Iowa stencils, one from Arizona, a few from Vermont, and another fun one from WRUN in Florida.
