The following communique was sent anonymously to It’s Going Down which we reprint below.
Last night (January 1, 2020) a Chase ATM and a cop car in the French Quarter were vandalized as a small strike against the tourist economy that kills workers, displaces people and profits off stealing our future. As the water rises around all sides of the city, developers carve out more and more space for tourists to get their “authentic New Orleans experience.”
The recent Hard Rock Hotel collapse has shown us how deadly the violence of development can be. In memory of José Ponce Arreola and Quinnyon Wimberly, with love for Ramírez Palma and against an unlivable future, a cop car and an ATM were redecorated with a few gallons of paint.
