Anti-H&K poster appears around Nottingham

HK - Not in Nottingham!

A poster opposing Nottingham-based arms company Heckler & Koch has appeared at various locations around the city. The poster is the work of a mysterious local artist known only as Questionmarc, and was designed as “a subliminal awareness raiser that the corrupt firm continues to operate from our city.”

The poster features a picture of the rooster troubadour Alan-a-Dale from Disney’s animated Robin Hood film, but instead of holding his traditional lute, he is holding a Heckler & Koch assault rifle. He stands atop the red HK logo, under which are the words “NOT IN NOTTINGHAM” (the refrain of a lament that he sings in the film).

These posters have appeared on street furniture, walls and doors, near roads, bridges and historic locations around the city. Try to spot one when you’re out and about! And if you’re thinking of downloading the poster below, printing it out and putting some up around town, just remember that flyposting is a crime!
