For this last blog, I decided to focus on the government push to prohibit the graffiti art. In 2013, the government proposed a draft in which those found guilty of abusive graffiti on buildings, could face a prison sentence of up to four years or a fine up to 100,000 Egyptian pounds. In my second article, the rights group, Arab Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) expressed its concern over a proposed law that would criminalize graffiti. They believed that it wasn’t fair since it was made in secret. In other words, the public had no idea that this proposal was even being constructed. The group then continue to tell the government, “it can go in the footsteps of its predecessor and try to issue laws. It will not succeed in their application and will not succeed in confiscating the gains of the revolution in doing so.” Many of the egyptain united against the bill and even held a protest against it.
After doing extra research, it was never concluded if the law passed.
