"It is likely that those people who engaged in direct confrontation with the security forces were partly representatives of such groups and partly spontaneous self-organized protesters.

An NYPD patrol vehicle was set on fire by an anonymous Molotov attack on Thursday in the Bronx. Revolutionary resistance to pig violence will continue until all pigs are abolished from NYC!
