Anarchist Pre-Inaugural Night March smashes up banks and Hooters

From our friends at Anarchist News:

“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 smashed.

2. TD Bank at 901 7th St. NW. A window was smashed and yellow paint was thrown on a side window.

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.”
