(en) US, Media, Anarchists March and Attack Businesses in DC on Eve of Inauguration
Tue, 29 Jan 2013 10:06:48 +0200
At midnight on the eve of Obama's second inaugural march, around 75 anarchists marched in
northwest DC. ---- Carrying black flags and two large black banners reading, "Fuck Every
Cop, Fuck Every President" and "No President Can Give You Freedom," the marchers chanted
and periodically hurled stacks of pamphlets into the air. ---- Several businesses were
targeted, including banks and the notoriously sexist establishment Hooter's. ---- Despite
being followed and almost surrounded by police, the crowd eventually dispersed with,
reportedly, no arrests. ---- From handbills found on site: ---- "This world gives our
generation no future. There will be no American Dream for us -- only a slow decline of the
wallet and of the soul...In rage at the storefronts and surveillance cameras and police of
this city, we present this small act of rebellion...
The armed goons no longer intimidate us, the ballot boxes no longer distract us, the empty
promises hold no more meaning."
From mainstream media coverage:
"Around 60 protesters damaged property around midnight Sunday to Monday morning around the
700 through 900 blocks of 7th Street NW, MPD officials say.
Police located 3 separate locations of damage:
1. DVA Federal Credit Union ATM at 800 K St. NW. The front of ATM screen was completely
2. TD Bank at 901 7th St. NW. A window was smashed and yellow paint was thrown on a side
3. Hooters at 825 7th St. NW. A window was smashed out by a man wearing a black mask.
The group also dropped pamphlets on the ground near the TD Bank. The pamphlets said,
"Against Every Cop. Against Every Boss. Against Every President."
The group dispersed in several directions and police were not able to make any arrests.
D.C. police are taking the incident seriously and are working on obtaining surveillance
video and further investigating the incidents."
