Arts Against Aggression together with Boston’s Ukrainian Community celebrated Ukrainian Independence Day near Faneuil Hall and Boston City Hall. The centerpiece of the program was Spider Putin, a repulsive arachnoid weaving webs of lies with his legs of black balloons.
Spider Putin was part of the traditional Ukrainian Independence Day Flag-raising, Festival and Fundraiser. The previous day, the activists ran a Online Auction Preview for Ukrainian Independence Day Festival. As a result of all these activities, funds were raised to purchase 35 individual first aid kits ($around 3500). The reason for Ukrainian soldiers needing these kits was also made clear to visitors with an artistice Putin workstation.
The organizers don’t plan to stop and are running a T-shirts for IFAKs Fundraiser! If you want to be the proud wearer of this lovely Tshirt and save a life, please visit the event to order.
