Seattle Wells Fargo attacked in solidarity with NW Detention Center hunger strikers
Early in the morning of April 28th we ran up to the Wells Fargo bank in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle. In just a couple of breif joyous moments we chucked a couple of rocks through their windows and left. It was easy, fun and exhilarating.
We were inspired by the defiance of the detainees in Tacoma's ICE Prison on hunger strike, who are demanding better pay, better food, better treatment, lower commissary, and fairness. We were excited to hear that 70 more strikers have joined the hunger strike as of Monday.
Wells Fargo was chosen as a target because it is one of the main funders for the GEO Group which owns and operates the Tacoma ICE facility.
As long as borders and capitalism exist, human beings will be caged, dehumanized, and treated as nothing more than a means by which to make a profit. Deportation is an example of the inherent violence of capitalism and the state. Borders are arbitrary lines drawn for the purposes of maintaining white supremacy and imperialism.
