Nice shot Oisin. Political grafitti and murals are among the best photographic subjects around - always fascinating. Not sure I particularly agree with the sentiment of this one though.

Many Basque separatists identify with the Zapatista movement and equate their cause to it.

Subcomandante Marcos, the de facto spokesman for the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) criticised the Spanish government for oppressing political action but has condemned ETA's terrorist tactics.

I don't agree with it either but it's very interesting to see political graffiti find its way 10,000KM across the world.

Some of my pictures these days are definitely showing hints of a "Phil-ish" influence!
