Its not often we hear from Italian artist and muralist BLU, but when we do its big, and so is this huge new wall painted in Niscemi, Sicily in solidarity with the “No Muos” movement.
No Muos fights for its citizens concern about the consequences of the installation of such a system: human health, Niscemi’s Sughereta ecosystem, quality of agricultural products, the right to mobility and development of the territory, the right to peace and of course the security of the territory and its habitants.
It’s these kind of concerns which Blu addresses in his mural; the Sicilians opposition to these monstrous machines coming from USA and which not only contaminate the environment with electromagnetic signals, but also seeds death and unrest.
We also need to add that considerations for peoples health and safety induced Sicily to revoke their consent for the Niscemi installation.
