G8 BLaCK FLOP

by ANTIG8@ECN.ORG Sunday, Jul. 29, 2001 at 11:00 AM

apart from their subjective thinking black bloc practice is objectively damaging for the movement

Black FLOP

- black has no production program, society is production and destruction, you only destroy

- your punkoid way of attacking corporations is ridicolous, every car or bank burnt for its own sake changes nothing

- black didn't move toward red zone but just bring panic through GSF thematic squares

- black block doesen't produce any sense, nihilism is dead from the beginning

- it's highly infiltrated by hooligans and cops, i met them. they burned gsf medics car and broke head of a COBAS comrade.

- if bb exists as a group: please get organized, communicate with other part of the movement,

make us know what you want and what you dislike. USE WORDS!! If you only dislike you're dead.

Differentiate yourself from hooligans, naziskins and psychos.

- in case your will is different from ours do your demos by yourself like in Prague

- I met some black b. completely drunk, IDIOTS !

- using too much violence when in minority leads movements to suicide

Articles from italy.indymedia:

"The BB-people who "target" property makes it easy for those who just want to destroy

in general. The destroy/beat-the-police-fraction of BB makes it easy for the police to attack all protestors and get away with it. "



- "POLICE MENDED SMASHERS

by M.P 7:52pm Sun Jul 22 '01 (Modified on 11:53pm Tue Jul 24 '01)



Since I am in genoa and thus a witness to most of these events and since i know anarchists-

friends of mine- which participated with the black Block demonstration i am able to confirm that

division between some of the Black Blocks who were there in the objective to engage into

targetted destruction and others who were probably ( unfortunatly ) there to break everything

and create a climate of harsh violence. The later group seem to be in connection with the police

because as they burnt cars and smashed the windows of small shops ( owned by genovese )

the police made no attempt to stop them . On the other hand , they charged peaceful protesters

and beat them heartily.
