Even if you werenâ€™t a graffiti aficionado you would probably recognize that this is somewhere in Melbourne because of the bluestone cobbles. It’sÂ Hosier Lane in November 2005. Amongst the different styles of wall graffiti there is oneÂ stencil on the kerbstone.Â ItÂ might have been there for some years. Australia has long hadÂ poor reputation for its treatment of refugees.Â It is appropriate that graffiti should carry subversive messages. But do small and inconspicuous stencils on the ground make any difference to political processes?
