Wine Riot Movement Spreads to Boston

wineriot

BOSTON – Fresh on the heels of their grand successes on the New York scene, an up-and-coming Anarchist collective known as Wine Riot is now expanding their recruitment efforts northward towards Boston.

Known for their staunch rejection of bourgeois culture, Wine Riot was formed last summer spontaneously, as everything always must be, in response to the killing of Eric Garner by the NYPD. The collective got its start in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where, in its most famous moment, a white member [all Wine Riot members appear to either be white or Asian-American – WS] walked up behind a police officer, lifted a brick aloft with which to strike him, and then suffered a panic attack when the officer turned around, collapsing into the fœtal position and needing to be hospitalised.

The group describes itself as “the truest and most militant allies of oppressed Black Americans,” and engages in “propaganda of the deed” against the police on these grounds.

“In fact we’re more militant than Black people. Get drunk and start fuckin’ rioting, Roxbury!” said one Boston member at the bar where he agreed to meet us, prior to hailing a taxi back to Jamaica Plain.

We were contacted to discuss the group’s recruitment methods by an individual who signed his e-mails “John Chaos”, sent from the e-mail address admin@tylerballiet.com.

“We’ve already made contact with some big names in revolutionary activity in North America, like Jason Unruhe and Suey Park. I don’t think they’re radical enough to join us as full members yet, but we’ve been engaging in theoretical debate.”

“We don’t have roles or hierarchies, because we’re anarchists, and everyone’s equal, but since I’m the smartest, you can think of me as the chief theoretician. Contrary to popular belief among Marxist-Leninists, we do utilise class analysis, and we’re making sure our next big event targets the social class which has historically made up the hard core of the anarchist movement.”

“John Chaos” left the Starbucks where he agreed to meet us, parting ways by providing us with some of the group’s literature, reproduced below in its entirety:
