Before I came to Nottingham, I had never encountered individuals who thought that mindless acts of vandalism were somehow “sticking it to the system”. Below is an extract from a posting on indymedia ,of someone who thinks exactly that.
“On Tuesday and Thursday this week we took a night walk through the city. Filled with disgust at society as we see it, we struck rapidly and repeatedly against various symbols of capitalist culture.
Cameras pointing into the streets were smashed with rocks. S.U.V’s and sports cars had their tires slashed and paint stripped. Cash machines were covered in paint.
We know these acts are small, we know that they will not bring capitalism and it’s abuses down, but we see them as part of a larger struggle. A struggle in which all individuals are able to strike back against state and capitalism’s vicious oppression. We make gestures like this to make it known that there are some who are burning with hatered for the system in it’s entirity.”
