    I have a real problem with people using broad actions as a cover for their extra-legal activity. See my comment above.

      And I'm sympathetic to that.  One of the big changes I've seen is that these sorts of things used to take place when there was a breakaway march, or a march that was explicitly anarchist.  It seems like there was some confusion on Mayday in those regards.

      The point was to explain some of the political context in Oakland.

      There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

        The Bloc I participated in was an autonomous action at the first mini-Bush inaugural. I knew exactly what I was getting into and I have no complaints on that score. I'd add that I wasn't the only one to get beaten, nor the worst off. The police violence was, as far as I could tell, completely indiscriminate.
