Reportback: Palo Alto Reclaim the Streets! - May 20
by Reclaim the Streets! Palo Alto
A Revolutionary Streetparty, a Suburban Insurrection...
On May 20th, hundreds of rebellious youth, students, and workers converged on downtown
Palo Alto. United by an effective critique of global capitalism - weaving
together the dominance of the G8, the monotony of modern urbanism, and
alienated suburban boredom - local youth, joined by a small number from around the Bay Area and Central Valley, successfully reclaimed the
streets. Marching behind banners exclaiming "Reclaim the Streets!",
"Resist the G8, Empire, and Global Capital", and "Live Without Dead
Time!", approximately 250 demonstrators (by police and media estimates)
left Lytton Plaza on a march which shutdown the entire downtown Palo Alto
commercial district for well over an hour.
