Guelph, Ontario: McDonalds attacked
[Posted by Anonymous, August 26, 2008, to no2010.com]
On the afternoon of August 24, a McDonalds was attacked in Guelph Ontario. We cemented shut the pipes, disabling the toilet in the bathroom stall. We were inspired by a similar action in Victoria, BC on May 31 carried out against McDonalds because of their involvement in the 2010 Olympics.
We did this after the Guelph Wood Squat recieved a notice of eviction. According to Jim Stokes, the city’s manager of realty services, “Pouring [concrete] foundations is way beyond what we will allow.” The concrete foundation was the beginning of a straw bale home for the winter. Either construction continues or the cement gets used in other ways.
“This most recent attack is in solidarity with the people living at the ‘wood squat’ of Guelph, Ontario who are facing eviction by that city today, August 25.”
