of Portland, Oregon,
a wake up call for the city fathers indeed, wait a second I have just read the article, because allegedly the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner,
masked anarchists madmen "illegally" repair potholes around town, known as the Portland Anarchist Road Care the group have the tools, tar and the will to do what the city council refuses to do, repair potholes in a timely and efficient manner, the PARC also has a well written manifesto and this is it:
Because we believe in building community solutions to the issues we face, outside of the state.
Because society portrays anarchists as only breaking windows and blocking roads.
Because when faced with anarchism as a political theory, statest often ask "But who will fix the roads."
Because the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner.
We are Portland Anarchist Road Care. We believe in community oriented direct action. We believe the state cares more about funding a militarised police force to suppress free speech than caring for and repairing the roads.
The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter's storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved. Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people's automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.
Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilise crews throughout our city, in our neighbourhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.
well that is all pretty clear, so city fathers and I guess city mothers of Portland if you do not want your streets to be overrun by anarchist, repair the potholes!
