Angry Aussie activists slam Abbot with "HOPELESS" Obama style poster

Here's one for the spoof badland department, this large poster installed in the Sydney suburb of Chippendale was created by graphic designer Michael Agzarian under the political activist group It spoofs Obama's famous "Hope" poster, but labels Abbott as "Hopeless". As the site says, "our poster depicts the grim situation Australia finds itself in with Tony Abbott as Prime Minister leading an equally inept and uncaring ministry.”

Agzarian put up more than $3,000 of his own money towards the anti-Abbott campaign, and on the site they're asking for donations to allow for more media buy. Agzarian works as a designer for clients such as the Commonwealth Bank, Australian Red Cross, New South Wales Police and a number of Australian universities. He's now lending his skills to this activism hoping to inspire change in Australia.
