Beehive Design Collective

Never heard of this group before. They were here today at the Broadway Street Fair with one of their massive murals - Mesoamerica Resiste - which was nine years in the making. They had copies of other mural, including The True Cost of Coal.

Quote:

The Mesoamérica Resiste graphics campaign is the third and final image in the Beehive’s trilogy about globalization in the Americas, focusing on resistance to mega-infrastructure projects that are literally paving the way for free trade agreements that devastate local economies and communities.

The stories in the graphic come from current struggles, but are also rooted in the legacies of over 500 years of colonialism in the Americas.

A very interesting group, and a very interesting way communicating issues:
