Re: “A young designer's new DIY boutique seeks to Tweek fashion.

Just to respond to the previous comment ...

It's a bit unclear to me who, exactly, "reported" that G-20 activists were responsible for the vandalism. When we called Jamal Krolowitz this morning, he said that the vandalism in question took place a month ago. And while he's been hearing "a lot of rumors" about G-20 activity, he didn't see any reason to think his window was connected to that. "It's just some vandalism, I guess," he told us.

As we've previously reported, during the lead-up to large-scale demonstrations, government officials and media accounts often play up fears of violent activity on the part of protesters. We want to make sure that any of those reports are grounded in fact.

Re: “A young designer's new DIY boutique seeks to Tweek fashion.

Someone who hand-designs, silkscreens, and sells small runs of affordable clothing while offering opportunity to local youth in an area of the city most people are scared to drive by? I can see why some "activists" in town to protest the G-20 reportedly decided to target, vandalize, and harass this store with an apparent smashed window.

This store IS capitalism at it's finest. I'm going to go buy a shirt. If the activists have actively targeted this store, I thank them for clarifying what it is they are really about. As a result of this "activism" anything I view decrying the actions of the G-20 will now be colored through this lens (for better or worse).

Perhaps some people do "just want to watch the world burn."
