Portland Anarchist Road Care Is Here To Repair Those Pesky Potholes

What do the people of Portland, Oregon to do when the local government won’t pay for much needed road repair? They call in Portland Anarchist Road Care and let those masked madmen “illegally” repair potholes around town.

Portland Anarchist Road Care has the tools, the tar and the moxy to do what the city council refuses to do- repair potholes in a timely and efficient manner.

The PARC also has a well written manifesto:

“Because we believe in building community solutions to the issues we face, outside of the state.

Because society portrays anarchists as only breaking windows and blocking roads.

Because when faced with anarchism as a political theory, statest often ask “But who will fix the roads.”

Because the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner.

We are Portland Anarchist Road Care. We believe in community oriented direct action. We believe the state cares more about funding a militarized police force to suppress free speech than caring for and repairing the roads.

The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter’s storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved. Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people’s automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.

Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilize crews throughout our city, in our neighborhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.”
