Converse Mexico Destroys M-City Community Mural
It appears that Converse Mexico has brought itself some negative attention by buffing an M-City community mural. Below is an open letter to the company giving them the details of their misconduct. If only this wasn't such a regular occurrence.
Dear Converse Mexico, my name is Gonzalo Alvarez and I have a cultural promotion project called MAMUTT ARTE, which focuses mainly on urban art. On Monday January 30, 2012, I stopped by the Colonia 7 de Noviembre a neighborhood, located in the Gustavo A. Madero district, in Mexico City, and noticed something that caught my attention. In that place (which lies largely on the Circuito Interior Avenue) is the community center of Cauce Ciudadano a project that is principally engaged in work with young gang members and youth at risk, who live in areas with high rates of violence. Cauce is a project certified by Ashoka and the Human Rights Commission of Mexico City, with more than 3500 success stories in just 11 years.
