To this end, we now make our first clear demand of Google. We demand that Google give three billion dollars to an anarchist organization of our choosing. This money will then be used to create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. In these communities, whether in San Francisco or in the woods, no one will ever have to pay rent and housing will be free. With this three billion from Google, we will solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area and prove to the world that an anarchist world is not only possible but in fact irrepressible.A demand by a group called “The Counterforce,” which struck up some weirdly over-the-top anger by protesting at Digg creator and Google Ventures employee Kevin Rose’s house, referencing an (admittedly in poor taste) misogynistic joke Rose made in a podcast six years ago, and calling him a “parasite.” Wow.

As they took me to the ground, one of the officers kneed me in the right temple. On the pavement, I begged them to watch out for my recently broken right elbow. Knees on my back and neck pinned me to the ground. I was cuffed and left face down.
