French graffiti in San Salvador
Added by ebany_d
A multilingual proclamation in support of life. Grafitti in El Salvador is usually used by rivalling street gangs to instill fear into people and mark 'ownership' of territory. This example offers a welcome departure from the trend, unfortunately this text was erased one week later. The choice to use a language which is not the language of wider communication can be indicative of overarching sentiments within the population, or perhaps a small group within the population. What do you think this language choice indicates?
