Petition to stop Melbourne mural of Jacinda Ardern hugging Muslim woman | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Petition to stop Melbourne mural of Jacinda Ardern hugging Muslim woman

A plan to paint a 23 metre mural on a Melbourne silo featuring New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern hugging a Muslim woman after the Christchurch massacre has been met with opposition.

More than 1400 people have signed a change.org petition calling for the project at Brunswick, in Melbourne's north, to be scrapped.

The crowdfunded campaign will see renowned street artist Loretta Lizzio paint the Tinning Street silo which towers over the skyline in the inner Melbourne suburb, news.com.au reports.

The painted image will be the same picture that was projected onto the world's tallest building — the Burj Khalifa in Dubai — after the terror attack of March 15.
