First it was the constant attacks on Famoso Pizzeria, then they stole the Save-On-Meats sign. Now, the same anarchist appears to be taking responsibility for a fire at a housing complex under construction in East Vancouver on 1st Avenue. All this to thwart the yuppie invasion of course.Not only did they set fire to the development, they claim they’ll be back. The warning “We’ll be back” were spray-painted on a portable toilet.

A posting on the Anarchist News website claims responsibility:

“Last night, we burned down a yuppie development on 1st Ave. near Victoria,” the posting says. “We wish and will create fear for developers in East Vancouver.”
