SF Queer Anarchists Blockade The Google/FIFA Pride Float In Solidarity with Brazilians!
by Queer Class War!
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)
