Earlier on today, Maser's Repeal mural on the Project Arts Centre was removed following a series of objections on planning grounds (ahem).
And the response, somewhat unsurprisingly, has been a mixture of digust, anger and defiance – and nowhere was this more apparent than on Twitter.

Neat that we live in a country where you can show pictures of fetuses to children in the street but not create art calling for a referendum.

To be fair to the Anti Choice lot the #repealthe8th mural was unplanned, had no hope of survival so they got rid of it...

I guess anti-choice activists are right in the sense once this mural is gone we'll probably just drop the whole thing and leave it as is

Some were straight-up pissed off – at the act itself...
... at the city ...

And finally, this tweet that will just shake you to your core
A sad day.
But we haven't heard the end of it.
