Grapes Hill underpass - Black Lives Matter (revisited)
Grapes Hill underpass - Black Lives Matter (revisited)
The work had been created over the weekend by the Norwich graffiti artist Knapple in protest of the killing of George Floyd on 25 May > Link. It took just a few days for someone add their own comment: 'LIES'. A couple of days later the work was, however, completely destroyed by covering it with black paint, apparently by mistake, though, and Knapple has since been commissioned to reinstate the work.

It has since been pointed out to me that the capital letters in 'All Cops Are accountaBle' form the acronym ACAB which stands for 'All Cops Are Bastards', a slogan of apparently long standing in the skinhead subculture. According to Wikipedia, it is used as a slogan and written catchphrase in graffiti, tattoos, and other imagery, and sometimes numerically rendered as '1312', after the alphabetic order of the letters. The slogan is associated with dissidents subjected to political persecution and police brutality.
