Across the country acts of resistance against the military,
the police, and the presidency continue to grow in fre-
quency and militancy. In response to increasing opposition,
law enforcement have stepped up their repression against
those who dare to fight back. The stories compiled below
are sources of information and inspiration: keep up the fight,
support each other, and don't get caught! --------- La Lucha Sigue!
McGLASSBURGER WITH FRIES? January 31st
A teenaged McDonald's employee in the
Bronx with an apparent vendetta against
the NYPD has been charged with assault
and reckless endangerment after allegedly
putting a chunk of glass in a cop's Big Mac.
The cop who bit into the glass-filled burger
allegedly suffered cuts to his mouth and
throat.

The owner of the McDonald's franchise
claims the safety of his customers and
crew is his top priority, despite the fact that
he sells them artery-clogging burgers and
fries for profit.

January 20th
housands of protesters gathered in Washington D.C. to

Goverment. An anarchist and anti-authoritarian march
1,000 people strong wound its way through the streets,
culminating in an attempt to breach a security checkpoint
with a reinforced banner. A melee ensued as police moved
in to stop the march. Pepper spray and pvc piping (from
the demolished banner) flew as marchers fought back
against the police assault.
Later in the day protesters managed to dislodge part of the
fencing used to keep the crowds away from the parade route.

...NO, SERIOUSLY!
Shortly after midnight, a crowd of masked anarchist youth
wielding torches, banners, and wooden poles marauded
through the heavily gentrified Adams Morgan district,
smashing the windows of a KFC, McDonalds, Riggs Bank,
and Citibank as well as a police substation! A banner was
dropped from the roof of a Starbucks proclaiming,:
"From DC to Iraq, With Occupation Comes Resisatance."
Damages to corporate and police property were estimated at $15,000.
