Occupy Cleveland bomb suspects’ supporters attend court wearing “anarchy” flag pins
Yesterday, three men, Connor Stevens, Brandon Baxter and Douglas Wright, who had been part of Occupy Cleveland, plead guilty in the plot to blow up the Ohio 82 bridge in Cleveland as part of the May 1 actions in Cleveland. One man, Anthony Hayne, previously cut a deal and plead guilty in July. One, Joshua Stafford, is still awaiting trial.
In the following picture, one can see Gail Stevens, mother of suspect Connor Stevens speaking with WKYC news. Notice the pins that the people behind her are wearing.
A red/black flag with a 4. The “4” is for the suspects(except for the one who cut the deal) and the red and black flag is generally understood to represent anarcho-communism(or socialism). The people supporting the suspects at the courthouse included members of Occupy Cleveland.
