3 Bank of Americas Attacked in Santa Cruz

Last night rocks were thrown through the windows of 2 Bank of Americas and another ATM location. We did this because the uprising of our comrades in Greece, England, Moscow and elsewhere will not go without a response. People here are killed by cops, screwed by banks, and we will revolt with just as much fury. These and the outbreaks in Europe show that it is simply for us to respond in the most direct way to the forces of repression in order for them to fall.

We chose Bank of America because of their exemplary demonstration of capitalism's principles (sic). Funding toxic coal projects, selling out workers, in bed with the government... Rather than many banks who worship money over people, we chose to stick it to one bank that worships money more than people. After all, it is a bank. But we'll be back.
