100 artists, under the direction of world-renowned artist, Alfredo Segatori, painted a 300 meter long mural in the centre of Buenos Aires.The mural site is within yards of 2 Shell petrol station and is there to shine a light on Shell's dangerous Arctic drilling plan.People spent their weekend (1/2/3 August) helping out with the project, which is on one of the cities busiest avenues. Several other cities in Argentina also created murals as part of the same project. We saw amazing courage recently in Portland, Oregon, and succeeded in delaying Shell's activities. But still, their activities have begun so it is more important than ever that this issue remains at the forefront of global discussion. The mural is a long lasting, visual narrative to aid that dialogue.
