Here's the details of the impending revolt, plus a recap of the standoff:
We, as anarchists and community members, informed the mother that if she stayed against the wishes of the state, we would defend her. We suggested a donation based stand. They tried that and the state workers, two women with clipboards and badges, returned and demanded they stop. We surrounded these workers and informed them of our sovereignty, that this is an autonomous zone, and they not only have no authority here, but they must leave the area. They went to the police...Whoever thought we'd see the day when the black bloc dished up lemonade? All I can say is it had better not be fuckin' Countrytime or I will be the first one calling the police.
We are proposing a lemonade bloc next last thursday. Get together with your friends and family and come up with a creative lemonade. Rosemary, lavender, mint, honey, agave, mate, carob, what the fuck ever you can come up with, show up early on alberta and 25th to 26th streets around 11 or 12 in the daytime, set up a table and offer lemonade for donation, or free. We should fill the entire bloc with lemonade stands!
