SF Queer Anarchists Blockade The Google/FIFA Pride Float In Solidarity with Brazilians!

In solidarity with Brazilians protesting the FIFA Would Cup, on Sunday June 29th, a group of 12 queer radicals blockaded the Google FIFA Float at the San Francisco Pride Parade. "We couldn't pass up the opportunity to connect issues of gentrification and evictions in the Bay Area with the violent displacement of Brazilians who live in the Favelas. The Google/FIFA float was a perfect target for direct action to raise awareness about these issues!"

The World Cup has violently evicted and even killed over 150,000 working class and poor people from their communities. El Sindicato dos Metroviários de São Paulo or Subway Workers Union of Sao Paulo was violently attacked by police when they went on strike against the World Cup and for better wages and benefits.

There will be a Solidarity demonstration for the Subway Workers this Thursday 4 PM @ the Brazilian Counsulate (300 Montgomery St #300, San Francisco, CA 94104)

The World Cup has violently evicted and even killed over 150,000 working class and poor people from their communities and the police have brutally repressed protests by Indigenous Warriors, Anarchists, Union Workers, and Homeless people. The night before the World Cup anarchist's homes were brutally raided to intimidate the movement but they could not repress the mass uprising that has challenged every day of the world cup. El Sindicato dos Metroviários de São Paulo or Subway Workers Union of Sao Paulo was violently attacked by police when they went on strike against the World Cup and for better wages and benefits.

I have been writing extensively writing about the new "Opiate of the People" which either joins Religion or Replaces it. I'm frustrated with assault of Gentrification in SF and the People I know have been dropping the Ball as I'm an Indigenous and When I that 98 year old woman was being put out on the streets by some Evil yuppie scum. I'm pleasantly Surprized by your actions but linking it to Brazil. Bravo We respect our Elders in the Indigenous Community.
