Rob Los Ricos a Chicano Anarchist
Thaxton, a Chicano anarchist, was arrested for hitting an officer on his shoulder with a rock during
the June 18, 1999 Reclaim the Streets demonstration (which came to be a police riot) in Eugene, Oregon. Of the twenty-one people arrested in connection with the June 18 protest, Thaxton received the stiffest charges: Assault II, Riot and Attempted Assault I. An Attempted Murder charge was briefly brought forth and then dropped.

Rob Thaxton, AKA Rob los Ricos, was released from the Oregon State Correctional Facility on June 29 after serving seven years.

More on Rob Los Ricos

When the revolution Rob had prepared himself for didn’t happen in the 70s, he drifted into activism in the 80s in Dallas, TX, and was involved in ACT-UP and CISPES, as well as KNON-FM community radio station, where he was eventually elevated to program director. Rob left for Austin and attended his first Group of 8 (G8) protest in Houston in the summer of 1991. While in Austin, Rob got involved with EF! Austin and the Black Banner Brigade. The Gulf War erupted shortly and the anarchists became the most militant and spectacular faction of the Austin anti-war effort. The media silence over the opposition to the war and the ineffectiveness of the protests led Rob to believe that protests-as-usual were a waste of time. He then turned his energy towards developing networks and gatherings of anarchists in Texas which resulted in two statewide gatherings in Austin (’92 to ‘93) and also an anarchist presence at the Republican National Convention in Houston (1992).
