A concrete wall in Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia has been transformed by artists Krimsone & Scott Nagy as part of a worldwide campaign called #NotACrime, which aims to use street art to raise awareness about the denial of education for the Baha’is in Iran.
The Baha’is are Iran’s largest religious minority, and the Iranian government has persecuted them since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Businesses are torched, people are fired from their jobs, thousands are harassed and jailed, and hundreds have been killed. The government also bans the Baha’is from teaching and studying in Iranian universities. (Read some background to the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran here).
