The Hamilton Spectator, “Graffiti raises speculation about anarchism”

Vandalism, in the form of graffiti scrawled on the fountain stones at Gage Park on Wednesday, are reviving speculation about the possibility of some kind of anarchist insurgency in the city.

The graffiti, in black, says: “Still hate: Capitalism Colonization Police.” The scrawl also includes the anarchist symbol, a circle with an A in it and the crosspiece of the A going through the letter and the circle.

The incident, which has set off a chain of remarks on the social news aggregator Reddit and on other social media, comes not quite three months after the early March smashing of windows and setting off of firecrackers on Locke Street South, attributed to a group of black-clad, masked anti-gentrification protesters.
