A Wells Fargo bank branch manager in Portland, Oregon discovered a broken window and an unlit Molotov cocktail inside the building Wednesday morning. An anonymous message posted on an anarchist website took responsibility for the action they called a small gesture of solidarity with CeCe McDonald, the young black transgender woman the state of Minnesota has said will initialy incarcerate as a male.
“As a small gesture of solidarity with CeCe, and all others who suffer under the hand of the racist, trans-misogynist capitalist state, a Molotov cocktail has been tossed through a large window of a Wells Fargo in Portland, Oregon late last night,” reads the statement on Anarchistnews.org. “The flaming bottle flew easily through the window spewing fire and glass into the building, a delightful and brief escape from the monotony of the endless spectacle.”
According to a local news station, the manager found the Molotov unlit.
“Regardless of whether or not it was a successful arson, at least it’s bringing light to CeCe’s case,” wrote a commenter on the anarchist website.
