Mark McGowan: The killing of Jean Charles de Menezes

In an extraordinary art event artist Mark McGowan is to re-enact the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes on Saturday, November 29, 2008. The event starts at 2pm outside Stockwell tube and finishes downstairs on the underground platform. McGowan says: "I think it is awful that de Menezes was killed in such a violent way. The cover-up and blatant lies by the police, who in fact have been giving false testimonies and purjured themselves in recent weeks, is absolutely terrible."

Now, you right-wing atheists, comport yourself. Here's an opportunity to rise above your fascistic, anti-immigrant prejudices, and show you are responsible.

So he's going to do this with a cardboard box over his head with a picture of the poor dead guy plastered on the front? Who will be playing the parts of the cops? Will they have live ammo or just shout BANG! BANG! at the appropriate point?
It's all rather tasteless isn't it? Don't tell me it's funded by the lottery.

Madame - why do you always give publicity to this talentless idiot? A guy who thinks scratching people's cars,or rolling a can along the road with his nose is art? He must be a pal cos you always present what he does as interesting when nobody else gives a toss....

I often ignore Mark's protest stunts if I think he's being obvious and tiresome, but this one is worthwhile. I know all you people just want to worry about Christmas, who'll win X Factor, whether you're getting enough sex etc, but showing some concern about the death of an innocent man in civilised London is not such a bad thing. Honestly, dead tree media have so much to answer for.
