On an unusually cold evening in downtown Los Angeles, street art supporters and veterans gathered to protest MOCA's decision to erase street artist Blu's mural. Monday night's "protest performance" involved the use of laser graffiti on the whitewashed site of Blu's mural. The video shows this creative form of protest and includes interviews of those involved. For more info and photos of the protest read here and the original LA Times article.

For more on the original controversy, read Brookyln Street Art's Jaime Rojo and Steven Harrington's response to the censorship, as well as Mat Gleason's outrage over the outrage cause by the censorship.
