It seems protest art will never go out of style (thankfully!), but what happens when you want to protest the destruction of someone else’s protest art. Still with me? That is the point behind some anti-gentrification street art that is all the buzz in Alabama.

It seems that in 1978 a group of artists created a massive piece on the side of a building; recently realtors had it painted over in order to sell the property. Well, some more artists had something to say about it, and thus some stellar anti-gentrification street art was born.
