Olympia: destruction of cars at Nissan dealer in solidarity with the E5 in Mexico
In the early hours of Friday, July 18th, we attacked the Nissan Dealership in the Olympia Automall by spraying brake fluid on and slashing the tires of new yet-to-be-sold cars. We did this in solidarity with Amelie, Carlos, and Fallon (Better known as the 5E3 Prisoners.).
These three were arrested in Mexico City in January 2014 in alleged connection the firebombing of a Goverment Building and Nissan Car Dealership in the center of the city. Whether these three be innocent or guilty, we know they desire a world that is free from domination, a world where anarchy has a potential to flourish and our enemies are forced to deal with consistent attacks. We know that Amelie, Carlos, and Fallon are brave individuals who will be able to handle whatever any state-force chooses to throw at them. We are inspired by their courage, and their confinement only make us wish to continue our attacks on institutions of domination, support for each other, desire for a world free of prisons and capital.
We attacked this dealership to let our comrades know that they are not alone, that despite their imprisonment the anarchist struggle still continues on. We hope to see more actions like this occur.
Remember; It’s Easy To Attack!
P.S. – According the Mainstream Media (link below) windows at the dealership were also smashed. While we wish we could say that we take credit for this, we are slightly puzzled how this action occurred, because all we used was brake fluid and knives. Perhaps the dealership was hoping to get more insurance money from this situation? As we all know capitalists are parasites. If indeed some other vandal was there that night – hats off!
The news report:
OLYMPIA, Wash. — Vandals targeted an Olympia Nissan dealership Wednesday night, causing nearly $100,000 in damage.

Nearly two-dozen brand new Nissans spent Friday being repaired for smashed windows and significant body damage. Seven had slashed tires and at least 14 will have to be repainted.
« This level of destruction is unusual, » said Olympia Police spokesperson Laura Wohl. « Usually if we have some kind of vandalism, it’s only one or two vehicles perhaps but there were 23 different vehicles involved in this situation. »
What’s also unusual is it didn’t happen at the spur of the moment.
Sources confirm that vandals stole two cans of brake fluid two weeks ago in preparation for the attack. This isn’t something you typically see vandals using, but brake fluid is very damaging and destroys a paint job in 10 minutes.
The dealership declined to talk on camera but, along with police, say they’ve ruled out any potentially disgruntled former workers. And with no surveillance video, there are few leads as to who might be behind this. But with the level of destruction both the dealership and police are concerned.
« Someone who is obviously it appears, is upset with the dealership, » Wohl said. « We do worry that they would come back and attack other parts of the dealership. »
The vandal left behind a knife used to slash tires and police hope if they can find a suspect, they can match DNA from the knife. But they need help finding a suspect.
« We have very little evidence in this case in terms of anyone who may have seen what happened, » Wohl said.
So police want anyone who might have seen something between 11 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday to give them a call.
Police, as well as private security for the auto mall, also plan to step up patrols in the area.
