San Francisco Yuppies Attacked In Solidarity With Pacific Northwest Grand Jury Resisters
In the early morning of August 22 in San Francisco's Mission District, we joyfully attacked all presence of gentrification and yuppie windows we could find. These malicious acts were done in solidarity with those in the Pacific Northwest resiting Grand Jury's. New and old condos, cafes, BMW's, Porsches, Mercedes, antique stores, fine restaurants, modern furniture stores, among many others, had their windows permanently etched with (A), DIE, Die Yuppie Scum, Fuck Off Yuppies, Yuppies Out!, and a variety of other obscenities.

To our companions currently facing or who do face Grand Jury's in the future: SAY NOTHING! You have waves of invisibles behind you ready to coalesce from the woodwork and attack at the ready.

The people and businesses we attacked, with smiles and laughs, have for decades and still continue to actively displace and destroy the generations of families in The Mission while continuing the project of capital by commodifying and compartmentalizing all modes of existence and ways of being. This project of capital is enforced and backed-up in every regard with the constant harassment, beatings and murders of the San Francisco Police Department. In this regard we send our warmest regards to those who recently rendered unusable SFPD and OPD vehicles - We see your actions, are inspired and continue the attack. It's so easy!

We also send our revolutionary fire to the Tinley Park 5, The Cleveland 4, Cece Mcdonald, Eric McDavid, Marie Mason and all others who attack the existent.

Please define who is (or isn't ) a ''Yuppie''. Surely you don't mean to include the attornies working to defend Grand JUry resisters. Or the very well paid Medical doctor who donates maybe 10 hrs a week to Heathcare for homeless. And gave Thousands to various Occupies ?
Personally i think ''class war''actions should be reserved for the , to use the some what inaccurate term , the ''1%''not Upperclass professionals who while they may ''live large ''compared to most working class folks do not run this country .
I'm just saying --

Which specific gentrification businesses got targetted?

This appears to represent a step up from the May 1st Dolores Park thing, which communicated nothing to anybody, since it wasn't followed by a use of human speech afterwards to make clear its goals and intentions.

This is on http://www.infoshop.org. It's an analysis of an earlier effort to fight the gentrification of SF's Mission District:

Notice in this how the gentrification of San Francisco's Mission comes as a secondary concern to the adolescent narcissist "anarchist" subculture's preoccupation with itself and compulsive inability to engage with anything outside of itself?
