Re: “It's Time for the Black Bloc to Go Away

sorry robby you fail hard with this one.

#1 anarchists and 'black bloc' types were intimately involved in all levels of OO from before the camp was even set up at Oscar grant Plaza and continue to this day. Kick them out and the kitchen, the medics, the media committee, almost every vital part of the movement will collapse.

#2 Oakland has one of the largest populations of anarchists in the country. You may not like them but don't pretend like they all come from the outside. There is a reason that every demo in this town has so many of them. it's cause they live up the damn street!

#3 The Fuck the Police marches are organized by the tactical action committee, a group of young black Oaklanders who have been targets of OPD and have been radicalized by OO. Don't invisibilize these people by calling them white black blockers. That is fucking racist.

#4 All those people with shields were not black bloc. Believe it or not, but regular people who show up at demos in Oakland right now are bringing gas masks and shields based on OPD's past behavior. Why would the black bloc who advocate diversity of tactics paint fucking peace signs on their shields?

where is Rachel Swan? at least when she criticized the Black Bloc she did her homework. Your story, Robert, is just sad.
