An anarchist group claimed responsibility for firebombing an Ottawa bank Tuesday and vowed to bring its cause to the upcoming G8 and G20 summits.

The group, which identified itself as FFFC, posted a video of the bombing online, accompanied by a message criticizing Royal Bank of Canada for being “a major sponsor of the recently concluded 2010 Olympics on stolen indigenous land.”

The message also denounced the bank for being a “major financier” of Alberta’s tarsands while calling itself one of the greenest companies in Canada.

It goes on to read: “The games in Vancouver are now over, but resistance continues. An RBC branch can be found in every corner of Kanada (sic) . . . The G8/G20 ‘leaders’ and bankers are meeting in Huntsville and Toronto to make decisions that will further their policies of exploitation of people and the environment.

“We will be there.”

In the short video [link to ottawa.indymedia.org] filmed around 3:25 a.m. — two people can seen inside the foyer of an RBC branch in Ottawa’s Glebe neighbourhood.

Seconds later, the people run out the side door as fire explodes throughout the building, shattering the front window.

The video is shot from across the street.

No one was hurt in the blaze, which was put out before it spread to neighbouring buildings.

Damages are estimated to be about $300,000, according to local media reports.

Very interesting. I spent many years in Canada and know it's players and politics well. This however is new. If these radicals are for real, they must be pretty stupid as they know the general Canadian public won't go for this armed violent bullshit resistance thing. Sort of unbelievable.

I would hazard an unpopular guess and say that this action was planned/orchestrated by RCMP and CSIS agents. They are always complaining that they don't have enough money and that people don't take them or potential threats seriously enough.

I really wouldn't put it past Canada's Conservative party, to order this kind of psychological op. Canadians like Americans will eat it up, hook line and sinker, and look to Canadian government to save them.

Rest assured there will be probably be arrests in the next few days. Prediction is that the authorities will claim to have solved the crime with the help of an under cover insider. Toronto 18 rings bells here.

After that look for further legislation against your privacy.

I will begin my own investigation of Canadian Authorities with my contacts and let you know what I find.
