Black Block self criticism re Oakland
http://www.anarchistnews.org/node/16910

I've been talking with my anarchist frieds and saying this is not the time nor place for rioting, sure we all need to get anger from our system and our emotional blocks cleared, but rEvolution starts from heart and compassion and working together. Black block group mind is very organic and does change organically, being part of greater whole.

Likewise I would like to hear self criticism from those "pacifists" who exhort physical violence against BB anarchist comrades and capturing them and giving them to police. Police infiltrators can work both sides, turning us against each other, to divide and conquer and to forget what we all are against and what we really are for.

Peace and rEvolution.

3. Yet
these people are activists on so many things, and even if they were not, why would you want to exclude - anyone?

6. BB really hurt
...the narrative that had been building about Oakland. I think the reason the second hurt Iraq Vet is not getting the attention that Scott Olsen did is because his police assault cam after BB tore up Oakland. It's an insane, tactic to hurt the city where the 99 live. Please stay home.
