Tacoma Municipal Building Paintbombed

Tacoma Municipal Building Paintbombed
In responce to the planned closure of the MLK Jr. Homeless Shelter, the Hilltop People's Council decided to paintbomb the Tacoma Municipal Building. This is the building where the corrupt City Council meets to decide the fates of people it does not care about whatsoever.

The City Council does not exist for the people of Tacoma, let alone the Hilltop community. It exists for its own enrcihment and the enrichment of its developer bedfellows. The City Council is concerned only with money, profit and rampant greed.

Do not let them close the shelter. Do not let them get away with this next assault on the community. The rich do not want to see the poverty they thrive off from their new condo windows. Cover their windows with paint. Break their windows. Go to the City Council meeting on May 6 and let them know what criminals they are.

In Solidarity,

Hilltop People's Council
