Question: What sort of shit would vandalise this poster, unless they had an interest in the Ripper museum? ---- Anti-Jack the Ripper museum billboard defaced with black paint 26 May 2016: From the usually cuntish Evening Standard here: Anti-Jack the Ripper museum billboard defaced with black paint ----Black paint mars a billboard erected this week for a new exhibition honouring women, which aims to rival the Jack the Ripper museum in the East End. ----Graffiti on the poster covers the word “Don’t” in “Don’t go to the Jack the Ripper museum”, obscures a link to a petition calling on the council to revoke its planning permission and masks the site of the exhibition, East End Women: The Real Story. ---- It is due to open at St George-in-the-East church tomorrow. ----The Jack the Ripper museum, which opened last year in Cable Street, was targeted by protesters for “glorifying” the 19th-century serial killer.

and for background…

Pop-up museum honoring east London women to rival Jack the Ripper museum
The planning permission promised a women’s history museum, only to be turned into a museum glorifying the serial killer Jack the Ripper

BENEDICT MOORE-BRIDGER Monday 23 May 2016: A museum honouring women, to rival the controversial Jack the Ripper venue, is opening to give the East End the “museum it was promised”.

The Jack The Ripper Museum, which opened last year, was beset by protests for “glorifying” the serial killer instead of celebrating East End women.

Its planning permission application said it would host “the only dedicated resource in the East End to women’s history” and when it emerged that it was dedicated to the Ripper, historians lambasted its content and critics called it “salacious, misogynist rubbish”.

A petition was launched to “celebrate Suffragettes not serial killers”, with more than 13,000 people calling on Tower Hamlets council to close the museum. Becky Warnock, the petition’s organiser, has created a pop-up museum called East End Women: The Real Story, which will open on Friday.

Ms Warnock and Abbie Gillgan, from the East End Women’s Collective, raised more than £6,000 in donations and the collective spent months researching and curating stories of inspirational women for the exhibition in St George-in-the-East church.

They today unveiled a billboard telling people to shun the Jack The Ripper Museum and visit theirs.

Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, the founder of the Jack The Ripper Museum, declined to comment.
