cats against gentrification!

Did you see the protest artwork that London's talking about right now?  Sand sculptor Zara Gaze took a midnight opportunity, a spade, and 40 tons of sand to create her comment on the gentrification of south London.  It's a fat cat (get it?) eating broccoli (you'll want to read the stories for how come that's a pun).  Unfortunately a security detail found Gaze at 3:30 and made her stop, but they did let her take pictures of it before it was destroyed.  Boo.
Here's the story at Hyperallergic.
Here's the story at the Guardian.
