In solidarity with Greek unrest and the declared global day of action against the state (Dec. 20th), we paid a visit to the yuppie West Portal branch of Bank of America. Anarchists and anti-capitalists took to the streets earlier in the evening to protest police brutality, only to be harassed, beaten up, and arrested. The police violence was legitimized by "public safety" propaganda. We don't buy it. The only people hurt in the Westfield Mall incident were the victims of the pigs, who are responsible for perpetrating nothing but a culture of violence. This action was in solidarity with those brave comrades.
Bank of America obviously has a distorted view of how their participation in the capitalist system affects folks around the world, so we thought we'd give them something else to look at.
Tomorrow they'll have a great view of the poor's rage embodied in a spider-webbed window, not to mention a fractured picture of that mansion across the street epitomizing gentrification.
THE POOR ARE TAKING ACTION
THE RICH WILL PUSH BUT WE WON'T BUDGE
THE POLICE WILL HARASS BUT WE WILL FIGHT BACK
This unrest is not unprecedented nor is it isolated. We fight for all desires to surface, for the earth and for each other.
We welcome collapse. More so, we advocate unity in the most dire sense of the word. Now more than ever, we must find the balance between destruction and creation. We cannot have one without the other.
