Bristol's crap anarchists attacked our squat!

Not when we were in - but back a couple of years ago when it was being used as a Lloyds TSB private bank.

For the last few years Bristol's suffered from a small number of anarcho wannabe crap terrorists.  Mostly they torch mobile phone masts, burn a car, arson railway signals (notice a theme here?) and similar crap and then post long, wordy statements on Bristol Indymedia for everyone to laugh at.

Setting fire to things is bad and wrong, kids!

A couple of years ago they attracted complete ridicule when they set fire to a couple of bins outside a Lloyds bank depot and then posted up a ten page essay expressing solidarity with the oppressed peoples of the world, etc, etc.  But in the same statement this passed almost unnoticed:

"on the night of wednesday the 17th of march 2010, the lloyds private banking office at 131 pembroke road, clifton, bristol was attacked.  A plaque with 'lloyds private banking' was removed from a wall and taken away.  Walls of the building were sprayed with: 'in the shadow of a dark horse lies a capitalist bailiff ', and 'bankers up against the wall'.  Pipes and cables to cooling fans etc to the building were cut.  Ttwo windows were smashed."

Hey, wow - our squat has a little place in Bristol anarcho-wank history!
