PORTLAND OR - OWS VIOLENCE ALERT!
Self | 02/29/2012 | PhilStone

Posted on 02/29/2012 9:53:07 AM PST by PhilosopherStone1000

Unconfirmed - Was outside having a smoke when a homeless I talk to occasionally was riding by and stopped to tell me to watch out going downtown.

OWSers have turned violent and are massing downtown. They started out breaking windows of two Starbuck's on SE 39th (Cesar Chavez) and have moved downtown where they broke windows on two banks.

Police were not notified of any planned protest march route.

Will try to confirm through local media.

Communique for Night of 2/28
author: Some Of Those Responsible

About an hour and a half ago (around ten pm, Tuesday night) a group of anticapitalists rolled up on the US Bank at SE 39th and Main and smashed out its windows and ATMs.

This was done in preparation for February 29th's Shut Down The Corporations Day. We chose a bank because banks have upheld the sanctity of capitalism, making it possible for a few people to accrue copious amounts of wealth. This was also for the role the banks have played in the current financial crisis and the level of environmental destruction they have supported. These banks are responsible for throwing poor and oppressed people the world over under the bus of extreme poverty and destitution. They did this all to keep the pockets of a few rich CEOs lined with extravagant bonuses, and it's time we started taking from those pockets.

We also did this to remind #Occupy to keep its horizons open. Rather than resort to the gory analogy about cats, we prefer to say they're more than one way to shut down a corporation. Parades through the city may be able to accomplish this task on occasion, but at the end of the day there's really no replacement for a few dozen folks in masks with rocks. We don't know whether this will be taken as solidarity or antagonism by the core of Occupy, but frankly that isn't worth dwelling on for us. You said you wanted to help shut down corporations, and we helped to do that in our own way. Take it or leave it, we're going to keep doing it.

Good night, Occupy, and good luck tomorrow.

Could not be happening in a more perfect location, one of the leading Liberal bastions on the Left Coast. In our Midwest Liberal sh**holes there would be a good chance some of the rioters would end up in the morgue. Portland? They will have free reign to create havoc to their little hearts’ content.

Their agenda:

"We chose a bank because banks have upheld the sanctity of capitalism, making it possible for a few people to accrue copious amounts of wealth. This was also for the role the banks have played in the current financial crisis and the level of environmental destruction they have supported. These banks are responsible for throwing poor and oppressed people the world over under the bus of extreme poverty and destitution.

We also did this to remind #Occupy to keep its horizons open. Rather than resort to the gory analogy about cats, we prefer to say they're more than one way to shut down a corporation.

We don't know whether this will be taken as solidarity or antagonism by the core of Occupy, but frankly that isn't worth dwelling on for us."

OK, I understand your displeasure with the banking system, but why Starbucks? Face it, you're just a bunch of malcontents that want to throw rocks at anything and everything.

OWS’ers didn’t break any windows, the bricks did. Portland needs strict brick control laws.
