Last week the 'alternative' paper, Portland Mercury, distributed 40,000 compact discs wrapped in shiny plastic for AOL-Time Warner, one of the largest media companies on the planet.
These CDs are a huge waste of natural resources and will not biodegrade for thousands of years. Unfortunately, Portland's support for the Mercury is degrading much faster. People throughout the city were angered by the mess created by the Mercury's greed; CDs were strewn all over busy streets—and will be for quite a while.
The Angry Octopus collective gathered several hundred of these offensive discs and returned them to the Mercury along with a nice sign to greet the hungover corporate stooges this morning—yeah we saw you at the sandy hut bitches, you are getting fat.
