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.

    I think it got so much bad press they were apologizing their asses off. Itls funny that in one interview the public health commissioner said “itls not like the health department is patroling around looking for lemonade stands to shut down or anything.” because that’s precisely what they were doing. It’s good that Portland anarchists have roots and can bring light to this type of increasing social control.
