One anarchist feels that Ted Hayes has taken it upon himself to slam anarchists in front of the corporate media as well as do everything possible to disrupt and cause dissent within anarchist ranks. Hayes seems to find it necessary to videotape fellow activists presumably to turn them into the police.
This is NOT a communique from the Black Bloc--just from one anarchist within the Bloc.
I was flabergasted to see you, Ted Hayes, go out of your way to denounce anarchists on media networks on Tuesday. You even went as far to say the ACLU is wrong to file lawsuits over the police riot and instead you praised the LAPD. You refuse to recognize the power structure may pat you on the head for a Judas-job well done but they will never accept you as their own.
You are entitled to your ill feelings towards anarchists. However, to media-whore oneself out like you did is disgusting, revolting, and unacceptable. Private dialogue within the movement is the only way to get the point across. The least you could do is use the forum I'm using now.
On Thursday night, after you were finished with making the talk show circuit in town, I saw you approach the Black Bloc for a discussion...with the media surrounding you. I didn't hear what you had to say at his point because the media was pushing in for your photo-op. If you wanted everyone involved with the Black Bloc to hear your message of salvation you could've waited for a better time.
As we marched to the jail you stayed with the Black Bloc the whole time. You had people with you that videotaped incessantly and rumor spread that you might turn anarchists over to the cops. That is difficult to believe because overall the larger movement has been very supportive of the Black Bloc--which many anarchists I have talked to, including myself, have appreciated. If this is true, however, it feels like a stab to the heart because you are willing to feed us to the sharks.
At the jail I could overhear you pushing for everyone to leave the jail, not hold vigil. You said that "you don't want to be in there." Man, my brothers and sisters locked in there mean more than my reputation and comfort. Stop worrying so much about yourself and stand up for your comrades.
What are you up to, Hayes? Which side are you going to be on? Make your decision and when you do, get back to me.
And, if you think that I've completely mistaken your intentions and actions, then let's have a dialogue.
