Attacks on Olympic Sponsors

RBC and GM Attacked in Vancouver – 420

April 20 (420), 2009 – Thousands of people lit and smoked the torches of their choice in the vicinity of the 2010 Countdown Clock and all around Vancouver. Later that night we smashed the windows at two official sponsors of the 2010 games. We targeted the Royal Bank of Canada location on 1st and Commercial and the General Motors location just west of the 1st St. bridge as one more very small contrubution to the ongoing resistance against the Olympics and the nightmares the rich have in store for us.

From 150-200 people participated in the Anti-Olympic Torch Light Parade marking the 1-Year Countdown to the 2010 Winter Games on Feb 12, 2009 in downtown Vancouver. After rallying at Victory Square at 6PM, where a ‘torch of resistance’ was lit and used to burn a Canadian Olympic flag, the demonstration marched to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, where a 2010 concert was taking place and dozens of police were assembled to stop any possible disruption. From there, the protest moved up Georgia St. to Burrard, stopping at various corporate sponsors, including the Hudson’s Bay Company, Royal Bank of Canada, Bell, and CTV. About a dozen torches were lit on the protest route, which ended at the ‘Countdown Clock’ located at the Art Gallery. Several targets were hit with paint bombs, including the clock as the rally ended. There were no arrests.

The protest was organized by the Olympics Resistance Network;

Canada: Anarchists Sabotage Bank

[Submitted by anon on Sun, 2009-01-25 to anarchistnews.org]

On the 19th of January we sabotaged a Scotiabank location in Canada. We inserted glue and pins into two of the locks and poured glue over the keypads of the ATM machines and glued the cardslots after inserting homemade blank plastic cards. Scotiabank is a sponsor of the Security & Prosperity Partnership(SPP) which will be ratified in the year 2010 along with two other Capitalist Spectaclesthe G8 meetings & Olympic games taking place the same year.

The present/future they seek for us is one of complete social control through the use of “intelligent surveillance systems”, “biometric technoligies”, and hyper militarized borders. The city streets/buses/subways/work places are always under the watchful eye of the state/cops/bosses. This prison society we live in is not so different than the warehouses of cheap labour millions of people have been forced into across North Americas prison systems.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our most heartfelt solidarity with all those fighting this poisonous system and to make a proposal that we use the lead up year to these events as an opportunity to inspire a renewal and intensity of actions that we saw throughout Canada the last two years. It’s not that we think excuses for action are necessary considering the state of things but a coordinated year of creative & diverse actions could be a powerful expression of our collective anger and desires for a brighter future. We hope this call reaches you in good spirits and look forward to your responses.

Never let the fuckers rest!

[Posted by anon on December 15, 2008, to friendsofgrassynarrows.com]

On Saturday the 13th December a group of anarchists smashed the windows of the RBC at Hastings and Nanaimo. We took the slogan from Greece “SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK” to heart. Against domination in all its forms from Olympic development and police murder on Coast Salish territories (Vancouver) to their equivalent in Greece and the world over.

Three windows were broken at the McDonald’s at Gordon and Wellington streets late Thursday or early yesterday, Guelph Police said last night.

Damage from that and graffiti on the building is estimated at $5,000.

The graffiti indicated the vandalism was the work of anarchists opposed to the 2010 Olympics, police said last night.

Any witnesses can call Constable Leslie Rulton [stop snitchin’].
