Banksy's take on our cruel immigration policies, Paris, June 2018



Update on Monday morning: the first mural shown hereafter has already been vandalised... Covered with blue spraypaint.

Been paying a visit to these murals.

Appeared mid-week in Paris, around World Refugee Day, June 20, they are attributed to Banksy.





This one is on a wall aside a centre for migrants. About 20 young men from Sudan, Eritrea and beyond, are currently staying outside of it, on the street with no water and no food.







This one is in the 19th arrondissement.





It's obvious the artist wants to highlight the lack of compassion Europe has shown to refugees in the past three years.

Let's hope it will draw the right attention to the crisis, the right way, with humanity and respect.
