Local anarchists, have apparently been inspired by the council’s own alledgedly higher quality ‘authorised’ flyposting sites, to up their own game. Less of the black and white A4 flyposters that campaign groups of this ilk are famed for, they’ve produced a series of bespoke, hand painted, wooden signs to advertise their message.
Signs like the one below have been screwed onto some of the hoardings along Leith Walk, alongside the council signs advertising business start-up workshops.
Meanwhile, in Abbeyhill, we spotted this thought provoking chalk message.
And last but not least, lurking just around the corner from the Gayfield Police station you may find this:
Greener Leith is not aware of any radical political message in this last image, or of any connection between any of these bits of graffiti/street art/vandalism (delete as appropriate).
More anachist street-art-adverts, should you like that sort of thing, in our Flickr account.
Of course, as a footnote we should point out that whilst the anarchist art advertises the UK wide Anarchist Federation website, you may have more luck getting in touch with the “friendly and organised” Edinburgh Anarchist Federation.
