  • I don't know if you're aware or not of what's happening in Romania, regarding the biggest mining exploitation in Europe, using cyanide, at Rosia Montana. People across a vast area are to be relocated, making way to the biggest cyanide lake in the world, and 4 mountains will dissapear, leaving behind one of the biggest mining craters in the world. It's a perfect recipe for dissaster, heavily supported by a corrupted goverment, for obvious reasons, but strongly opposed by the people. This escaladed into one of the biggest protests in Romania after the revolution in 1989, and after 2 weeks of protests already, the numbers of the protesters are growing worldwide. 
     
     
    I made this sketch as a sign of protest. I hope other artists will join, support the cause and spread the word THROUGH ART.
