I happened upon this image while walking along K-Road in Auckland and wanted to know more.
I have since learned that ‘#WithSyria is a movement of over 130 organizations and people around the world not taking sides, but standing in solidarity with those caught in conflict. Banksy lent his support and this image to the #WithSyria movement to say: there is always hope.’
As reported by The BBC, Banksy reworked one of his most celebrated pieces to mark the third anniversary of the ongoing conflict in Syria….a year ago in March of 2014.
The words comprising the balloon string ‘and with the children of Pakistan‘ were sadly added in December.
