Pro-Hamas sympathizers left a trail of destruction at the University of California on Monday night, breaking windows and releasing hundreds of cockroaches.

As per the Washington Beacon, seven windows were found shattered inside the office of university president Michael V. Drake, along with red paint sprayed on the walls, and hundreds of cockroaches were let loose. A group of self-described “anti-colonial anarchists and communists” took responsibility for the damage in a statement published on IndyBay, a site known for publishing chat threads from extremists.

“With the Aurora Borealis above us and the martyrs in our hearts, we attacked the UC Office of the President in solidarity with the Palestinian Resistance,” the statement reads. “As anti-colonial anarchists and communists, we offer this act of material and spiritual solidarity with the hopes of shattering the illusion that resistance is limited to a single site.”

“The University of California is nothing more than a settler colonial project, where knowledge is produced and captured by the State to only dig its claws deeper into the flesh of Indigenous lands here and abroad,” the vandals further state. “The University does not simply fund Israel; it creates Israel and launches this white colony into the post-modern Empire.”

This brazen act of vandalism at the University of California comes on the heels of a similar incident in Portland, Oregon. An anonymous anarchist collective there recently took credit for igniting over a dozen police vehicles, expressing their backing of “brutalized student protesters” and “Palestinian martyrs,” according to the report.
