A propósito do post anterior, encontrei aqui alguma coisa sobre o grupo Black Mask, um dos tais grupos dos anos sessenta. Vale a pena ler tudo, mas fica aqui apenas a parte em que “sabotaram” uma grande superfície:
“Another infamous stunt, The ‘mill-in’ at Macy’s involved organising large numbers of people to enter the store in small groups posing as regular shoppers or staff. Their aim was to cause maximum disruption during the store’s peak business hours in the build up to Christmas. Activists systematically moved stock around, stole items, broke items, gave items away and released animals, such as dogs and cats, into the food department. Even a buzzard was seen terrorising staff in the China section. Decoy activists identified themselves with flags and banners but made sure to stand alongside regular shoppers, who were subsequently roughed up and chucked out by security and floor staff.”
As fotos vêm daqui e mostram a ocupação que fizeram de Wall Street em 1967. As caveiras lembram um pouco uma versão primordial da máscara do V for Vendetta. Podia ser uma versão Golden Age do Occupy Wall Street.
