The parking of betrayers is not allowed

The words "bicycles" and "traitors" are phonetically similar in German, especially in the Saxonian dialect. So I exchanged the signs saying "Parking of bicycles prohibited" for new printed signs saying "Parking of traitors prohibited". This referred to the public space in front of the Academy of Visual Arts being blocked by police to protect the US Consulate opposite the academy. While a large number of students and people had protested against this, many felt that the thin line between protest and betrayal could be easily crossed in the tense political atmosphere.
