15 Illegal NPA Signs Go White In LA

A friend and reader in LA, Stefan Kloo, just sent us images of 15 NPA advertisements that were whited out by an unnamed party recently. The last image, which has a "free humanity" stencil sprayed onto the blank billboard makes me think this wasn't the city of LA cracking down, but a public protest of the illegal signage similar to the NYSAT project. If anyone has any info on this matter, please tell us what you know.

I agree totally that outdoor advertising is also a part of our culture and moreover an important segment of the economy for advertisers and consumers. Advertising also creates employment.
