Vandals deface Bonifacio mural

A photo provided by youth group Alyansa ng Kabataang Lumalaban para sa Sambayanan shows a mural along a Quezon City overpass in its original condition. Lower photo shows the vandalized mural, which came to the group’s attention last week.

MANILA, Philippines - A mural at a Quezon City overpass, depicting Andres Bonifacio and members of the Katipunan, has been defaced by vandals, a youth group said yesterday.
Rodel Adiao, spokesperson of Alyansa ng Kabataang Lumalaban para sa Sambayanan, said the incident showed a lack of recognition for the heroism of Bonifacio and the plight of the Filipino masses to be free from the Spanish colonizers.
“There are very few chances that the public could stare at such a nationalist mural outside of art galleries and museums, and then we just lost it instantly,” Adiao said.
The mural, painted by a group called Ang Gerilya, showed Bonifacio with his comrades bearing a flag of Katipunan.
The country is set to celebrate the 149th birth anniversary of Bonifacio on Nov. 30.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan http://pilipinastreetplan.blogspot.com/2009/03/tie-one-19791998-rip.html Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone  http://saberone.com/blog/2009/
