Ottawa bank branch firebombed

Are the G8 and G20 the next targets?


An unnamed group claimed responsibility for the firebombing of a Royal Bank of Canada branch in an upscale Ottawa neighborhood, vowing to “be there” at next month’s G8 and G20 summits in Huntsville, Ont. and Toronto. A short video clip of the attack, which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning, was posted online. A person comes out of the branch’s side door and is then silhouetted against an orange flash. Then another figure emerges, and the two cross the street in the leafy Ottawa residential area called the Glebe. “Resistance continues,” reads a text posted with the video. “An RBC branch can be found in every corner of Kanada (sic).” The Royal Bank was target for self-styled anarchists protesting the Vancouver Winter Olympics. The damage to the branch was estimated at $300,000.

  1. European politics comes to Canada.

    • In Europe spoiled middle class white kids firebomb commercial outlets in the name of Aboriginal rights?

      I'll eat my hat if anyone involved in this was Aboriginal, this reeks of idiot white kids. Can't you just see Aboriginal leaders sitting around going "Our struggle has been advanced! It is slightly less convenient to bank in the Glebe!"

  2. g 20 is bullshit dont you people see that the governments of the world are trying to take over and make everything one big monopoly. you are fools if you fall for it, and canada is stolen land by britain, i am canadian citizen, but canada land really belongs to america, one day america will come back and take over canada, and take it to first world country, from the shithole it is now, i hope these guys go to toronto and fuck shit up and ottawa more too. there is no reason to have g20 on north american land, get that scum out of there. these anarchists are not trying to hurt anyone either, they are trying to prove a point though. if they really wanted to hurt people they would of bomb the bank in the daytime but they didnt they do it when no one was there

  3. Two words: agents provocateurs.

  4. They are not unnamed – they have clearly signed the note they left with the video, which they posted on the Indymedia site, calling themselves FFFC – Ottawa. Whoever the heck that is. The poster is someone calling themselves GracB, who also posted a set of pictures on the same site. http://ottawa.indymedia.org/en/2010/05/11233.shtm

  5. Well,I guess it was only a matter of time before this stuff started here!

  6. "Down with the tarsands!"

    "Quick, into Daddy's SUV!"
