Another of my toons against #F1 in #Bahrain turned into graffiti in Barbar

(Associated Press) A Bahraini carrying a child passes a wall Thursday, April 5, 2012, in Barbar, Bahrain, west of the capital of Manama, that is painted with graffiti depicting Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in a race car, calling for a boycott of this year’s Formula OneBahrain grand prix, scheduled for April 22. The Arabic is a signature reading “free men of Barbar.” A year after an anti-government uprising forced Bahrain’s rulers to cancel the kingdom’s coveted Formula One race, the grand prix is again smack in the middle of a power struggle.
