Three Billboards inspire protests in London and Florida

In Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Mrs Hayes plasters the message “Raped while dying. And still no arrests. How come Chief Willoughby?” on three disused billboards. Three trucks dressed in strikingly similar billboards, organised in cooperation with the Justice 4 Grenfell group, were paraded through London carrying the message “71 dead. And still no arrests? How come?” Similarly, following the deadly school shooting in Florida, three trucks were parked outside the offices of Senator Marco Rubio baring the message “Slaughtered in school. And still no gun control. Who come, Marco Rubio?” Marco Rubio is a Republican Senator from Florida who is known to receive considerable donations from the NRA.
