  • Mona Eltahawy in court over defacing posters: ‘I’m proud of what I did’

    Activist explains why she has no regrets about spray-painting anti-Muslim ads and how it’s part of her goal of direct activism.

    The Guardian, By Amanda Holpuch, November 29

    New York – Writer and activist Mona Eltahawy appeared in court on Thursday on charges of criminal mischief for spray-painting an anti-Muslim poster in a New York City subway station.

    Eltahawy was offered a plea deal but chose to go to trial for charges of criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of an instrument of graffiti.

    “I actually look forward to standing trial, because I acted out of principle and I’m proud of what I did and I will spray-paint that ad again in a second,” Eltahawy told the Guardian.
