NSW Graffiti Removal Day not all Roses

The New South Wales Government is committed to reducing graffiti vandalism by supporting local communities to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti. To support this goal the Government created a statewide graffiti removal and prevention day called “Graffiti Removal Day.”

The day aims to encourage people to offer their time to prevent and remove graffiti and to highlight the issue of graffiti.

If you have horrible graffiti tags you can report them utilizing the type on the Graffiti Removal Day web site.

Residents sick of unattractive tags scrawled throughout the community were being urged to participate in Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday 30th October.

The day aims to aid fight this dilemma which costs the State Government more than $1 million a year.

But things didn’t quite visit plan. Baird confronted an online backlash over removing of a mural on Sunday of himself..

On Sunday morning Mr Baird uploaded a photo of himself standing before a mural.

“Did you know that NSW comes with an official ‘graffiti removal day’?” the place said.

“Well, it does. And it’s today. Just saying.”

The response was a wave of backlash:

“Fantastic … thanks for the picture … this is going to be great for the anti-Baird campaign at the following election,” another said.

Not all were considered: “Everyone hates you. Just saying.”

The mural was made by Sydney artist Scott Marsh in response to the city’s lockout laws, which require venues to close their doors at 1.30am and function last drinks at 3am.

Marsh supported among the more colourful answers in a post on his own Facebook page..
