Save On Meats hunting for sign-stealing 'anarchists' as group targets Vancouver's 'capitalists'
The sign heist is apparently part of a larger push of protest and harassment going on in the neighbourhood. The group behind the theft is thought to be the same one that is behind a recent window smashing at Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, which happened last week.The act was meant to let the gentrifiers know that they have entered an area with a long history of class warfare
“In all seriousness this sign is a real heart felt piece for the people who work with us,” Brand wrote. “It makes them really sad that people would steal it and disrespect their living. Therefore making me upset. Help me find it and spread the word fast.”
The Vancouver Province reports that a posting on an anarchist news website says, “a small group of merry mischief making anarchists” are responsible.
“The act was meant to let the gentrifiers know that they have entered an area with a long history of class warfare,” the post reads.
