Greta Thunberg mural in Edmonton defaced, days after emerging

EDMONTON — A graffiti mural of Swedish local weather activist Greta Thunberg that emerged in Edmonton days in the past has been defaced.

The paintings, a portrait of the 16-year-old towards a shiny blue background, was painted on a free wall between 94 Street and Commonwealth Station.

The eyes in the portrait have been blacked out, and a slur and a message telling Thunberg to go away Canada have been written over high in French.

The mural captured town’s consideration earlier in the week when a video by its believed creator was shared on Twitter.

Before it was defaced, the mural learn “Thank you Beaver Hills Warriors,” a reference to the grassroots environmental group that helped lead Friday’s march in Edmonton, and “Thank you Greta.”

Thousands of individuals joined Thunberg for the rally in Edmonton. The teen visited a number of Indigenous communities in northern Alberta later in the week, accompanied at one level by a BBC documentary crew.
