Monday Mural: the mighty pen

Saw this one while driving down Telegraph Avenue.  It took me the longest time to figure out what was in the hand.  I thought, sword?  gun?  Finally I realized it was a ballpoint pen.  Duh.  The stop sign says "Stop gentrification and speak up."  Gentrification in the Bay Area has driven real estate prices sky high so working stiffs are having real trouble finding housing either to buy or rent.

  1. Unfortunately in these times of "alternate facts", I fear the pen has lost some of it's might.

  7. A pen could also be used for signing a petition.
    But, it is difficult to see that it is a pen the hand is holding - as if being proffered to sign that petition against more construction!
