“Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals.
We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery, poverty, crime and confusion existing in society.” – Lucy Parsons – anarchist, labor organizer 1853-1942

“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the earth, the money, and the machines.” – Voltairine de Cleyre – anarchist, feminist 1866-1912

We have just uploaded 3 vegan anarchist zines written in spanish! Please read, share, print, and distribute as you like!

We did not write these zines, but our friends did! All credit to WARZONE DISTRO/The Feral Space

According to the City of Richmond’s Property Search and Tax Assessment data, the assessed value of the land that Dwight Jones’ house sits on has dropped 64,000 in the past year.

Mayorstaxassessment

We all know that the market fluctuates, and that the functioning of the real estate market under capitalism is largely speculative and prejudicial. But what is very interesting here, is that the Mayor’s neighbors did not receive the same sorts of lowered assessments. The amount taxed on 64,000 at the current rate would be approx. $768 dollars annually. While not a ton of money, we all know that every little bit counts, especially when our schools, parks, and public transit are hurting like they are.

Raymond Boone of the Richmond Free Press, who allowed Occupy protesters to camp on his lawn in 2011, lives next door to the Mayor. Here are his assessments:Boone

MayorBoonAsses

Boone’s property is about half an acre larger than the Mayor’s, which does not seem to explain the giant discrepancy in land values and assessments.

Another of the Mayor’s neighbors, with a much smaller parcel, did receive a lower land assessment, but it does not seem in proportion to what the Mayor received.

MayorFarrowAsses

 

 
To recap our friend ran the numbers on square foot value:
Mayor’s land: $0.27/sq ft
Boone’s land (2 parcels): $0.86/sqft and $0.69/sqft
The smaller parcel referred to with its new LOWERED value: $1.41/sqft

Ok, so apparently larger parcels get lower value per sqft?…

http://map.richmondgov.com/parcel/

If you zoom out from the mayor’s land, the two larger nearby pieces of land as you look slightly south are $0.42/sqft and $0.40/sqft (for a 1.5million sqft $600k piece of land).

The mayor must be living over a toxic dump.

We can not speak as to whether or not Dwight Jones had or has any knowledge about this assessment discrepancy, but it seems potentially problematic, and certainly deserves an explanation if not an inquiry. It would be a shame if the Mayor himself were not paying appropriate taxes into the City of Richmond.

Civil Rights Attorney, Tom Roberts, who has previously represented members of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, and also spoke to ABC to confirm the complete legality of our posting publicly available information online like the Mayor’s address, was shocked to see the drop in the assessment of the Mayor’s property, and suggested that an inquiry be made into the matter.

If you would like to explore this issue more, please check out the City’s property finder application. It is a very helpful tool for many applications. http://eservices.ci.richmond.va.us/applications/propertysearch/default.aspx
