Debate looms for Sydney 'burqa' mural
Considered the home of Sydney's Bohemian community, Newtown in the city's inner-west, boasts soaring real estate prices, more cafes and restaurants than you could eat at in a year, and a mural that's divided some sections of the community.
In September of this year, business owner Sergio Redegalli painted it outside his shop.
The original mural featured a woman in a niqab or Islamic face veil, with a red cross through it, and the words 'Ban the Burqa'.
Although it has been modified, the mural is still there. It's prompted some locals to organise a community meeting to debate its presence.
