US Bank Attacked in Los Angeles, California

The U.S. Bank building in downtown Los Angeles was subject to an anti-capitalist attack on August 27.

A group of about 20 people descended upon the building’s main foyer at 5th Street and Grand Avenue, hammered the plate-glass windows and spray painted messages.

Others used paint to scrawl messages such as “Burn All Banks” and “ACAB,” and “Land Back,” a reference to the Land Back initiative, an effort to re-establish indigenous people’s political control over land that has historically belonged to them prior to colonization.

The group succeeded in shattering the front door and destroyed most of the huge plate-glass windows lining the lobby.

The group left the area expediently, and were able to avoid the pigs.
