Can We Defy Censorship by Actions If Not by Words?

People in Stalingrad installed a fountain, featuring a crocodile named Barmaley, even though the government had banned the much-loved story on which the crocodile was based.

When the people built “The Children's Fountain” - even though the story itself could not be republished - were they acting in defiance of the government's order? Explain your answer.

If erecting “The Children’s Fountain” was an act of defiance, would you support (or not support) such an action (especially if you were a Stalingrad resident)? Explain your answer.

Can you think of other ways in which people can defy censorship by their actions, when the government does not permit criticism by written words
