Portland Anarchists fixing potholes

Tired of waiting for city services to patch Portland's winter-wrecked streets, and also tired of state authority and the global structures of late capitalism that support it, anarchists are filling potholes.

They have patched holes on three city blocks and remain in a “constant state” of awareness to find other craters to fill, emails the anonymous PARC. Needless to say, they have yet to consult the municipality for any of these activities. “We don’t think the city should exist; we are only limited by our capacity and our imaginations,” says PARC. “We aren’t asking permission, because these are our streets. They belong to the people of Portland, and the people of Portland will fix them.”
