Oakland, California, U.S. - On Wednesday night, another anti-police demonstration erupted in rioting, although on a smaller scale than last week's. Participants smashed numerous windows (including several at a Wells Fargo, a bank frequently targeted by U.S. anarchists for sponsoring private immigrant detention centers), expensive vehicles and bus shelters.

Anarchists have carried out a number of graveyard-shift solidarity actions in the East Bay, including attacks on a police station, BART stations and banks by smashing windows and ATM screens and gluing locks and ticket machines.
