New Banksy Print to Help VOINA

But what makes this public sale even more interesting is that Banksy has chosen the legal defense fund of the underground Russian artist collective VOINA to be the recipient of all of the proceeds from the sale.

If you're not familiar with VOINA, two of its members are currently in jail in
St Petersburg for drawing a massive penis on a bridge opposite KGB headquarters. The action was a protest of police corruption.
‘Choose your weapon’, the print Banksy made available this morning comes in an edition of 100 on grey, plus a smaller edition of red, blue and green (25 each).
