China Invites Tourists to Bomb “Great Wall”

March 4, 2014 | Bucky Turco

In an effort to curb the amount of vandalism that visitors (and its citizens) have inflicted on the more ancient and popular sections of the Great Wall of China, officials have created a designated zone where people can etch and scrawl their names. “As many tourists like to carve words on buildings, we will develop the graffiti writing area as a new scenic spot of Mutianyu,” said the Chinese person who is tasked with these kind of things. Sounds awesome, but what do you think will happen if someone writes “Free Tibet” or spray paints an image of Ai Weiwei on the barrier? (Photo: @peregrinari)
