Sublevarte: Public space is becoming less public every day (Mexico City, Mexico)

Mexico City is a fast paced megalopolis, growing exponentially day by day, the gap between social classes gets bigger and more evident.

The advertisements and its products become very familiar for everyone after we are forced to see them ―time after time―, but just a few people have access to them.

The public space is on sale, the streets are on sale; while we’re overwhelmed with publicity, freedom of expression is alibi and even punished.

Purchasing power should not determine the right to have a voice on the streets.

Simultaneous actions in far away cities, thousands of kilometers away from us, tell us that all of us have similar experiences with our interactions in the public space, how that has been taken away from us but it also tell us that we can fight to recover those spaces: with organization the voice is louder.

Mexico City, 24/03
