The Portland Anarchists’ Lemonade Revolt
By now I’m sure you’ve heard the story about the little girl selling lemonade who was told to cease and desist by Health Department officials. Apparently our government has solved all crimes and won the war on drugs. Given that they’ve also secured world peace, all that’s left is slapping $500 fines on little girls with lemonade stands.
What you may not have heard of is the Portland Anarchists’ Lemonade Revolt. For you facebook denizens out there, check it out. On August 26th, they’ll be jamming the streets of Portland with lemonade for sale, for donations, for free…whatever. An elegant piece of absurdist resistance.
Let’s hope it leaves a sour taste in the Health Department’s mouth.
