/pol/ arrives at the scene of Shia LaBeouf’s HWNDU flag in Liverpool! Flag down!
Liverpool, UK — Shia LaBeouf has met his match, but the battle wages on. LaBeouf teamed up with his artist colleagues, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, to re-install the living anti-Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” (HWNDU) exhibit in Liverpool at the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT). FACT released a statement from their website:
Speaking of the work’s relocation to Liverpool, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner state: ‘Events have shown that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist.’ The new location for the work is particularly fitting for Turner, having grown up in the North West of England, who adds: ‘We are proud to be continuing the project at FACT, an arts centre at the heart of the community.'”
Once the feed went live, /pol/ users immediately began brainstorming on how to pinpoint the flag’s location. Before the exact location was known, they contemplated migratory patterns and species of birds that flew overhead.
Then the new location was revealed. Soon thereafter, a mysterious figure appeared in the HWNDU live internet feed.
Not long after he appeared on screen, the flag went missing.
He posed on the roof top for the others to see.
To further prove the involvement of /pol/, anon offered some confirmation.
It is unclear if the anon at the scene stole the flag, or if staff at the foundation took it down. The feed went blank shortly thereafter, and FACT provided the following statement:
On police advice, FACT and LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner have removed the installation HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US due to dangerous, illegal trespassing.
