Olympia: Wells Fargo Financial Office Attacked

Article below:
IN SOLIDARITY WITH THOSE IMPRISONED AT I.C.E. DETENTION CENTERS AROUND THE COUNTRY:

To the businessmen who rot behind desks at the Wells Fargo Financial office in Olympia,

Last night we attacked your storefront and spray painted a letter of hatred on your wall as an assault on your participation in the prison-industrial complex. The company you work for is a major stockholder in the GEO Group, owners of private concentration camps around the globe, including a rather infamous one in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The GEO Group also owns the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Northwest Detention Center, located in Tacoma, WA, an institution which imprisons hundreds of human beings each year for indefinite periods of time, rips families apart, and ruins lives. This cannot continue.

To those who use their jobs as an excuse to aid the transformation of the world into a complex of prisons:
YOU ARE NO LONGER SAFE.

just one question... 23.Jul.2008 11:59

Roz

who are you talking to when you say "you are no longer safe" ???

Are you talking to the bank tellers?

The oligarchs you mentioned in your post will hear absolutely nothing about your deed, and if they did, they wouldn't care the slightest.

keep up the good work
