A home on the 1700 block of W. 1st street in Aberdeen went up in flames this evening around 9pm.
The electricity for the home had recently been shut off as punishment for the tenant being poor. The woman living there had apparently been using candles for light.
Two dogs and a cat died in the fire, though no humans were home at the time.
The Grays Harbor County Assessor’s office listed the home’s owners as Robert and Lucille Sornberger of Hoquiam.
The Sornbergers, by demanding proof of wage slavery in return for a home and refusing to use the ill-gotten wealth they’ve stolen from this and other tenants to provide for their community’s needs, are to be held just as responsible for this lost home as the violent system of capitalism which inevitably robs people daily of access to many essentials to life, particularly including but not nearly limited to heat, light, shelter and safety.
(A) Wild Harbor extends our solidarity to this woman, our latest comrade in the war of oppressor v. oppressed.
