This mural is an accusation against those who wash their hands. Countless children do not enjoy appropriate spaces for their growth in our neighbourhoods: in the urban and social suburbs structures like libraries, sports facilities, parks and other places of socialisation are almost non-existent. Entire generations are left on the street.
The younger ones have never been a priority in this city, and they are often the victims of an inexorable social and school injustice. People in charge speak empty, weightless words. Their resolutions are worthless, as the worst campaign promises.
The feet of my little king are tied because this city will not take him by the hand to guide him towards his future.
