Ryan “Onion” Hartman on the radio & appear- ance, City Hall, LDub.
“Onion” discusses Anarchy, Direct Action, and monkey- wrenching (length: 14 min., category: propaganda*).*No violence. Topics, “strik- ing fear, shooting down all cops” is not discussed.

Don’t be distracted. Focus on real issues: Our schools, road repairs, public health, educa- tion, & safety for everyone.
Please don’t forget.
Don’t forget those critics who did nothing for over 2 years to help City fix our roads. No ideas. Just com- plained. Acted out rudely.
