Portland, OR: Claim of responsibility for theft of TV news camera by anarchists during port blockades

from anarchistnews:

25,000$ News Camera Stolen at Port Action

From Media Bistro [this link to press report of the incident was included in the communique; it is not the source of the communique]

Given the good deal of media-led misinformation//opposition to the west coast #d12 port shutdown, the presence of habitually unsympathetic local news crews at the blockaded terminals in Portland seemed to assure that our actions would be misrepresented beyond recognition. So when the opportunity arose to relieve KATU of a 25,000$ news camera, we did just that. Given KATU’s inclination to distort current events through the filthy lense of power, we figured they were no worse off filming their story from the muddy bottom of the Willamette. #splash.

-some folks.
