For the last few days I've been following the ongoing saga of Governor Paul LePage's high-handed removal of a 36ft-long mural from the Department of Labor building in Augusta, Maine, USA. Governor LePage is a Republican who regards the mural as biased in favour of organized labour and conflicts with his pro-business agenda. The excellent mural, which took artist Judy Taylor a year to create and was installed in 2008, includes in its 11 panels a variety of workers, as well as strikers and child labourers. Its removal to secret storage on LePage's orders has caused a storm of protest. Mount Holyoke College President Lynn Pasquarella has accused him of rewriting history as in "totalitarian regimes". The contract with artist Judy Taylor has been flouted, in breach of the Berne Convention. A federal lawsuit has now been filed against Dictator LePage (CLICK).
