In the early morning of May 18, a Royal Bank in Ottawa was destroyed by a bomb attack. Shortly thereafter, a video was placed on YouTube by a previously unknown group, the FFFC. The group claimed responsibility for the attack, arguing that it was a response to both the bank's sponsoring of the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, held on "stolen indigenous land", and its financing of the Tar Sands project, said to be destroying the environment. Upon viewing the video, it is clear that despite the relatively low budget attack, this act was inherently political in nature. What is interesting to note, is the way that this event has been described, covered, and debated since its occurrence.
