Visual activism in the urban landscape #1 – how immigrants have made Britain what it is today

These next three posts focus on visual activism – encompassing a variety of forms of street art, guerrilla campaigning, using posters, stickers, paintings and drawing placed in the urban landscape. These images were all taken whilst going about my daily activities in Manchester, this Summer and Autumn.

Found on the street (in the Cambridge Street area), very soon after the UK’s referendum vote to leave the European Union. I think this poster makes a very strong point about the vital and productive role ‘immigrants’ have had for centuries in the UK, helping produce the very nature of what it is to British today. #postreflove
