Firebomb hits new Starbucks
by JOSEPH ROSE
Someone also breaks three windows at the Southeast Portland store, which has drawn neighborhood opposition.....
Portland's Independent Media Center, a Web site that frequently is used to coordinate protests, urged resistance to Starbucks' arrival in the neighborhood.
"The first day of this parasitic corporate invasion is also the first day of the Starbucks Resistance," the Web site said. "We will stop at nothing but the complete withdrawal of this unjust corporation from our community."
The Web site urged people to protest outside the coffee shop from 2 to 6 p.m. Wednesday. But by midafternoon, there was one protester holding a cardboard sign, and a group of black-clad young people, some with kerchiefs covering their faces, sitting at tables in front, sipping coffee.
