Anarchists vow vengeance against G20 Summit

CANADA - An anarchist group called the FFFC has posted a video and a message on YouTube claiming responsibility for firebombing a Royal Bank of Canada branch in Ottawa on Tuesday and is now ramping up to do more attacks on the G20 Summit in Toronto. No one was hurt in the firebombing.

The group denounced the Royal Bank for a “major financier” of Alberta’s tarsands while calling itself one of the greenest companies in Canada and criticized the bank for being involved in the 2010 Winter Olympics held on Native Canadian land.

It also says: "The G8/G20 ‘leaders’ and bankers are meeting in Huntsville and Toronto to make decisions that will further their policies of exploitation of people and the environment." and is promising to be there

Note: This seems more like an environmentally minded arsonist group than an anarchist one. Anarchists believe in the removal of government, resulting in a might is right / mob rule. The concept is that mob rule is in theory more democratic, but it ignores the fact the foreign governments, corportations, etc will just exploit the lack of government even more. Thus anarchy doesn't really work as a system of government (or lack thereof) because it allows corporations/outsiders to do whatever they please.

ie. Somalia is currently in a state of anarchy. Outside governments have used the country as a dumping ground for toxic and nuclear waste, the people there are desperate and quite a few have resorted to piracy. Proof that anarchy doesn't work.

The FFFC probably is not a true anarchist group. They're just resorting to extreme measures to draw attention to issues.
