'No' voters go on spray paint rampage in Sydney

A Sydney woman has posted photos of a 'No' spray paint campaign against same-sex marriage that has targeted homes and cars and even a local wall mural.

 

Steph Sands posted nine photographs to her Facebook page on Monday morning showing a series of 'No' graffiti tags that had been spray painted overnight in the suburb of Stanmore.

"Woke up to 'respectful' self-expression from No voters In Stanmore this morning," she wrote.

"Devastated that the beautiful mural I drive past most weeks has been ruined. Feel free to share. And if anyone knows the best way to save the mural please comment."

The photos show cars, front fences, walls and letterboxes tagged in varying colours with the word 'NO'.

"For everyone claiming how "respectful" the No voters are....bulls**t! Vandalism!," one Facebook user wrote.

"Trying to make a point while vandalising someone else’s property. Disgusting," wrote another.

"Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull should each share the bill for the clean up," another suggested.

Another Sydneysider posted an image of his 'No'-tagged car, writing: "Even did it [to] my car ... Feeling angry!"

Last week a Brisbane woman woke up to find swastikas spray-painted on her pro-equality rainbow flag decorations.

Jessica Lette-Garvey and her neighbour had hung rainbow flags out the front of their Dutton Park homes as a show of support for marriage equality.

A Queensland woman woke up to find her rainbow flags spray painted with swastikas.

"I would never imagine that by simply showing support for equality would I be met with such vitriol," Mr Lette-Garvey wrote on Facebook.

"I can't help but just want to cry."
