We were first made aware of Hackney Councils plans to remove the Roa street art  rabbit piece on Hackney Road late last week when a journalist from The Guardian got in touch with us about the piece. The Guardian have run a story in todays paper about this Roa street art piece.

The rabbit / hare pictured above was commissioned by Premises Studios, the building owners over a year ago, but Hackney Council have now issued them with a removal notice, as the piece conflicts with the boroughs graffiti policy.

If you want to help SAVE THE RABBIT, an online petition has been set up to save this Roa street art piece. You can add your name to it and also have your say by leaving a comment. And for those of you on Twitter help spread the word and use #savetherabbit.

UPDATE: Building owner Julia Craik has sent us the latest news on the Roa SAVE THE RABBIT fight. You can read about it on their website.
