Nachie From RAAN stands by vandalism act at RevBooks
09 Sep 2005
Nachie, cofounder of RAAN and his partner Matt Brehe own and maintain RAAN and its website. They have expressed solidarity with the act of vandalism done in their name, and therefore, while denying direct responsibility, they are ultimately and can be held financially responsible.
Quoted from RAAN website:

"The maintainers of the RAAN Network Hub as well as other affiliated web communities have received anonymous reports indicating that at some point over the past several days, the Boston branch of "Revolution Books" - propaganda outlet of the authoritarian Maoist RCP and its chairman Bob Avakian - was the target of actions including, but not necessarily limited to, the gluing of locks and scrawling of anti-Maoist graffiti alongside the RAAN insignia.

These incidents are predated by the vandalization of the NYC "Revolution Books" by a network cell in the summer of 2003. Shortly afterwards, RCP representatives contacted the Hub and were informed that not only does RAAN function on a basis of decentralized autonomous activity, (therefore maintaining no record of membership) but being as that the RCP is a political party of Leninist descent, the attack did fall within the network's stated principles.

RAAN-NN reported at the time that members of the network were encouraged to decide for themselves whether or not to support the action."

I don't mind when dictator worshippers get stuck in the face either. Maybe we should vandalize LPC.
I suggest the LPC buy arms.

Arm the members of the LPC.

That would be better. If the members of the LPC were armed, one call to the FBI would be the end of them.
