In the early morning hours, paint bombs sailed into a camera tower protecting the gentrification condos on 36th and Adeline St. in Oakland, CA. Pink paint splattered onto the instruments of surveillance, and the bandits left a cryptic tag before disappearing into the night.

“I’d buy that for a dollar!”
-amerikan folk saying
In the last month of 2006, the acting City Council unanimously approved Resolution 80319, allowing the Pulte Home Corporation to go ahead with its plans to develop the area around the 16th Street train station in the Bottoms neighborhood of West Oakland. The development plan consisted of 130 three-story units that carried the name Zephyr Gate, a homage to the defunct train station that was once the terminus of the transcontinental railroad.

It’s so hard to feel alive and well, connected with one another in this network of crises called the city. At the same time, though, I’ve always felt drawn towards this semi-functional relationship between the city and its inhabitants – the beauty in the hustles, getting over on the system, playing the game, finding the holes in the plot, and seeking out others who feel similar – but I know all too well I didn’t create the city, so how could it ever really work for me?

From Journal de Montreal
While the annual anti-capitalist demonstration was in full swing on Wednesday evening in Vieux-Montreal, vandals had a field day in the neighborhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, in Montreal.
At first, at around 6:30, suspects tried to arson a car and truck rental business, Jean Légaré, situated at 3035 rue Hochelaga.
Police have confirmed that at least one incendiary device was thrown against one of the windows of the building, which nonetheless did not break.
