Olympia police say they’re investigating attempted arsons after fires were set at
two schools.

Deputy Fire Chief Greg Wright says a bale of hay at Pioneer Elementary and a trash
can at the private Nova School were set on fire either late Friday or Saturday
morning. Reeves Middle School was also burglarized.

Both blazes were just about out when fire crews arrived on scene.

Wright says the damage at both schools was estimated at $15,000. No one was inside
the buildings when the fires occurred.

Olympia police spokeswoman Laura Wohl says there are no suspects at this time.

A part from seeing some very endearing folks get arrested the night wasn’t all that bad. Some queer compañer@s and I had been drinking, drugging, and graf writing that night and remembered that there was a supposed to be a noise demo in front of that youth enclosure on the border of Africa Town. We arrived after the event was supposed to be starting, but not too late for some festivities. When we arrived we found some cute folks and some angry anon types getting a little rowdy. One of the activists that the media loves to film was there and dare I say that if it wasn’t for the fact that it was actually happening watching people get rowdy with the cops and damaging one of their crusers and then watching some fine folks get arrested would seem like some sort of illegalist erotica. All in all there was a festive atmosphere. A cop car got fucked with. And white people on the internet got mad. If nothing too awful comes out of the arrests I’d say it was a smashing way to spend New Years and I’m sure there will be more smashing times coming soon to the PNW. With all those folks doin that sneaky smashy smashy in OLY and all these uncontrollables doin that party thing in SEA there’s no reason this can’t be the winter of our joyous discontent.

Fuck the prisons and the society that spawned them.

More than making things happen I hope some of us decide to let things happen.

Cheeeers fuckers,

Bank Robbery on Broadway, Seattle

December 20th, from the pig’s mouth

“A man who robbed a bank on Broadway early this evening remains at large. At approximately 5:09 p.m. officers responded to the 500 block of Broadway Avenue East for the report of a bank robbery.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the adult male suspect walked up to counter at Umpqua Bank and handed the teller a note indicating that it was a robbery and that he had a gun. The teller handed the suspect cash and the suspect exited the bank without further incident.  No gun was actually seen.

There were three customers in the bank at the time of the robbery but none noticed the suspect or were aware that a robbery had taken place. Responding officers set up containment and an area search was conducted but the suspect was not located.”

Police Station Attacked-Olympia, WA

from Anarchist News

Early this morning we climbed onto the roof of the Westside Olympia Police Sub Station and smashed out 8-10 of their surveillance cameras. This Sub Station existed without cameras for a long time, and was a site of many anarchist attacks in the past. When we saw that they had finally put up cameras… we decided they needed to come down.

We smashed out 3-4 windows as we left, and laughed into the night. This act was done in solidarity with all anarchist prisoners, all those facing repression, for the silent ones and those on the run, and for ourselves – to keep our blood boiling.

Because it’s fun. Because it’s easy. Because we fucking hate the police and the society they maintain.

3 Police Cars Smashed-Olympia, WA

from Act For Freedom Now

On the night of December 16th, 3 police cruisers parked outside of Olympia’s Creighton Justice Center (home of the Olympia municipal jail and municipal court) had windows smashed out.


This particular day was picked in conjunction with the international call for solidarity with the Barcelona 5, accused of the bomb attack against the Roman-Catholic cathedral in Zaragoza, Spain.


Two, who remain in pre-trial custody, Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, were also recently the targets of prosecution in the Chilean Anarchist Bombs Case (2010-2012). They both confronted that trial and 9 months of incarceration with dignity. They inspired the international anarchist community and so now we want to show our support for them and our hatred of the repressive forces with this act of rebellion.
Solidarity means attack! The Olympia Police are a manifestation of the same apparatus of repression that tries to control our comrades overseas. This control and repression exists in the US in abundance as well. For example, on November 19th in Durham, North Carolina, the police brutally murdered 17-year-old Chuey Huerta while he was being detained in the back seat of their cruiser.


With our action we also send a heartfelt message of solidarity to all those who are suffering the loss of a loved one at the hands of the police, particularly those in Durham, NC.


The only thing in the back of these cruisers tonight will be the shattered egos of the OPD, to whom we send a big FUCK YOU!
