According to the post on Rose City Counter-Info, the group vandalized the doors, windows, and the museum's glass facade because they were the venue for a conference that included "landowners, asset managers, investors, forest industry executives and other vampires." The attack was revenge against capitalism and in solidarity with the Atlanta terror-linked "Stop Cop City" movement. 61 members of the network were recently indicted by a Fulton County grand jury on RICO, domestic terrorism and money laundering charges.
The blog post reads: "Overnight, a group of anarchists attacked the World Forestry Center museum and its conference building next door, destroying doors, windows, and the museum's glass facade before dissapearing into the darkness. The Center is set to host the 'Who Will Own the Forest?' conference September 26th-28th. The conference brings together 'landowners, asset managers, investors, forest industry executives' and other vampires to plan and adapt their plundering of the forests for capitalist growth."
"To truly defend the forests requires the destruction of capitalism altogether. Knowing there can be no dialogue with what must be destroyed, we turn to the attack," the post continues.
"We hope the damage presents an obstacle to the conference going as planned. Though we don't mind the ambience of broken glass and missing windows, we expect the industry executives might! Love to those fighting against Cop City, the Mountain Valley Pipeline, and their world!" the blog post concludes.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the Portland Police and the museum have not released statements about the vandalism.
Cascadia Forest Defenders, an anarchist militant environmental group, posted a video to X showing boarded-up windows at the museum. The group also hung up their own banner on the museum stating, "Land back, you will never own the forest."
Leftist protesters occupied the outside of the museum on Wednesday and confronted people trying to go inside.
The group also dropped a banner over the EXIT 74 highway overpass which reads: "Timber money is blood money."
Photos posted to the same X account show a large group posing for a picture with picket signs and a banner that reads: "Cut emissions, not forests."
The Post Millennial reached out to the World Forestry Center museum and the Portland Police for comment.
