These Anarchists Are Fixing Portland’s Pothole Problem

The potholes in Portland were getting worse and worse and the city residents kept waiting and waiting for someone to fix them.

That’s why these Oregon anarchists headed for the streets and took matters into their own hands.

Portland Anarchist Road Care – or PARC – is an organization made up of local anarchist volunteers who fix pesky potholes by themselves, rather than waiting on the city government.

What they’re doing is technically illegal, however PARC says that they prefer to rely on community solutions instead of depending on the Portland Bureau of Transportation to fix their problems. Plus, they have already filled up 5 of the city’s potholes and are taking requests for more.

“The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter’s storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved,” says PARC. “Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people’s automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.”

“Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilize crews throughout our city, in our neighborhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.”
