Washington Prosecutors Refuse to Charge Far-Right Shooter – Prosecutors Send a Clear Message Inviting More Fascist Murders

Washington. In Washington state, Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney Elizabeth McMullen has declined to press charges against Forest Michael Machala, the far-right gunman who shot and nearly killed a counter-demonstrator during a fascist rally in Olympia on December 12. Machala’s attack was the second far-right shooting in Olympia in seven days. Thurston County Superior Court found probable cause for McMullen to file first-degree assault charges against Machala on December 14—yet she chose not to file them, letting the deadline elapse without doing anything. Machala posted bail shortly after his arrest, while his victim was still in the hospital. The court went on to drop the no-contact order stipulating that he should not approach the victim; in addition to removing protection from the victim, this lays the groundwork for Machala to regain possession of his confiscated AR-15. In refusing to press charges against a known extremist who carried out a widely documented shooting in front of a large number of witnesses, Elizabeth McMullen is inviting fascists to come to Olympia and turn it into a killing field.

#Olympia, #WA #25j: Demo in solidarity with #Portland – A Reportback

A call was put out for a demo here in Olympia in solidarity with Portland against the deployment of the federal agents. I showed up to the Heritage Park Fountain a little late but when I got there I was greeted by a crowd size I haven’t seen since the beginning of the uprising. There was probably around 150 people, 75-100 of them in bloc and geared up with helmets, shields, umbrellas, and a few gas masks.

Fighting Smarter: Strategy & Analysis in #Olympia, #WA

Olympia. Washington. So much has been happening in so-called Olympia and so fast that it feels impossible to catch a breather. The consistent level of energy and action has out paced any other struggle here from what I can remember. It’s been a real moment of ‘anything is possible’, … Conditions are changing rapidly so it makes less sense to sit down and do a thorough analysis of what currently is because by tomorrow it may be completely useless. What I hope to do instead is give a general over view of the broad terrain we’re fighting in, give some suggestions, and pass on some tools that everyone can use for moment to moment analysis as we delve further into the chaotic stream of struggle.

#Olympia, #WA: Mayor’s house vandalized during rowdy anti-cop march

Olympia. WA. The night of June 12, an assortment of black liberation fighters, anarchists, and fellow travelers held a rowdy march against the police and the white supremacist world they maintain in downtown Olympia. In spite of the heavy militia presence tailing the march (30+ chuds from a new crew calling itself “American Wolf” in fluorescent green “peacekeeper” shirts with paint guns, regular guns, zip tie handcuffs; box trucks, and a limo), the march still managed to vandalize the mayor’s house, torch a US flag, bust up a bank and a Starbucks, and spread pro-black liberation and pro-abolition graffiti from downtown to the South Capitol neighborhood. There were no arrests.
