Banksy Lower East Side

day 09 01 Banksy Lower East Side

Another day, another new Banksy piece and this time in the Lower East Side area of New York.

It seems that Mr Banksy has gone political this time as the installation includes a black car sprayed with men holding guns, looking into the air. Three horse are sprayed onto the white truck behind the car, bucking in terror, wearing night vision goggles.

According to NY Daily News, the barrel to the left of the car and truck has a 1-800 number on it that links to the audio from a classified video that was originally leaked by Wikileaks in 2010. The audio is ripped from a 39 minute video from July 12, 2007 in Baghdad. The strike left up to 18 dead and this included a Reuters photographer and also wounded two innocent children.
