May Day Anti-Capitalist Action's Remaining Wreckage, San Francisco, 5/6/09: photos
According to anonymous communiques posted to Indybay and reports from the corporate media -- in addition to the evidence remaining five days later -- anti-capitalists attacked a string of high-end retailers in the Union Square area of San Francisco on the evening of May 1st, International Workers’ Day. Apparently the action was conducted by a large group of up to 50 people, planned without the use of electronic media such as websites or cell phones, and was completed within a matter of about ten minutes.
The 100 block of Grant Street (pictured here) appeared to be the hardest hit, or at least more wreckage remains there to this day. Obviously the original damage was more extensive than what is seen in these photos.
