Melbourne: graffiti cleaned off Captain Cook’s cottage, press coverage

February 6: Council workers hosed off graffiti from Captain Cook’s cottage done as an anarchist attack for Invasion Day (a statement can be read here).

Or, as one radio station put it:  “An online anarchist group protesting white settlement has since taken responsibility for the attack.”

According to ABC news: “It is the second such attack in little more than a week.”

Edited to add: “Melbourne City Council revealed the cottage had been paint-bombed on January 28, with a subsequent graffiti attack on February 4 in which the words, ‘Cappy Cook was a crook killer liar theif’ (sic) were spray-painted across the brickwork.” (The Australian)

A news broadcast showing the graffiti can be seen here.
