Frankly, the damage McDonald's is doing to the health of the individuals in the society through its greasy McBurgers which contain far more oil than and tanker, to the environment, and to the the workers, through exploitation, far outweighs the damage done by a group of idealistic individuals to the McDonald's building.

I am not condoning the groups action, but the fact of the matter is that McDonald's are the bigger criminals, and THEY are the ones who should be prosecuted the full extent of the law.

: : A few days ago the Filika Eiteria organization in Greece( an anarchist group named after the patriots who freed greece from Turkey in 1821,claimed responsability for blowing up a McDonalds in Athens. The four gas cylinder bombs levelled the building. Thios organization is targeting American multinational corporations in a campaign building up to Clinton's planned visit in November. I don't know a whole lot about this organization's politics, but it is interesting that protestors in both France and Greece have picked McDonald's as the symbol of American corporate power.

: You didn't say whether you approve of this group's tactics, but I certainly don't. When one disagrees with a person, organization, business, or country violence is not the answer. There are always non-violent outlets (including, but not limited to, this website) to make ones opinions known. I hope this group is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
