Street Art of the Day: A new Banksy has surfaced on the wall of a Poundland shop in London, and it depicts a child of Asian origin hard at work sewing Union Jack bunting. (Embiggen)
Chances are, the location of the work is significant: In 2010, Poundland launched an investigation after it was discovered that a 7-year-old boy was working 100 hours a week in an Indian sweatshop, producing items for the store. A spokeswoman said at the time: “Poundland does not tolerate child labor under any circumstances and will not work with companies that employ children.”

The people who run our cities don’t understand graffiti because they think nothing has the right to exist unless it makes a profit. The people who truly deface our neighborhoods are the companies that scrawl giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff. Any advertisement in public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours, it belongs to you, it’s yours to take, rearrange and re-use. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.
