Billboards Hijacked in Paris

March 25, 2010

We’ve talked about bans on billboard advertising, and initiatives to replace them with art. But in Paris, they’ve been hijacked. Spotted in the Strasbourg Saint-Denis Metro station, these retro-illuminated billboards are apparently the work of the Antipub brigade (antipublicity), a group of left-wing activists who use ad spaces as political protest venues, this time to coincide with the French regional elections on Sunday.

Second from left: "Double your profit : Demand a new planet"

Left: "The state protects the banks, the wealthy and the corporations...what about us?"

Right: "Electronic voting = Electoral piracy"
