TORONTO  — G20 protesters dressed like the anarchist group Black Bloc are smashing bank windows and have damaged a police cruiser as riot police defend Toronto's summit security zone.

Riot police armed with a tear gas cannon and gas masks are holding a line north of the zone.

Store front windows at a Starbucks have been smashed.

A roving pack of protesters, said to be part of the self-described anarchist group the Black Bloc, are running through the city with no police interference.

Riot police, however, are nearby, armed with tear gas cannons.

One protester has been seriously injured and was carried away by others.

EMS says at least three protesters received head injuries in a confrontation with riot police, and were bleeding but conscious.

The larger protest, meanwhile, continued along its route back to the Ontario legislature.

Ten thousand protesters were expected to gather on the grounds of the Ontario legislature today, but the city is being pelted with rain and early police estimates put the crowd at about 4,000.

The "People's First March" is being organized by an umbrella organization of labour unions.

Queen Street is the key watch point since the G20 security zone is just south of there and there has been talk protesters want to take a run at the steel and concrete barricades.

A wall of police on bicycles is holding the line at Queen, with riot police behind them and police on horseback further back.

A convoy of more than a dozen minivans carrying police is also moving into the area.

Police have said 5,100 officers from forces across the province have been tasked with protecting the summit.

Security has been pegged at $1 billion.

The large but seemingly peaceful crowd held banners reading "Save the planet, sink Harper" and "G20 Fascism."

Members of the Black Bloc are wearing their trademark black balaclavas.

Two people allegedly carrying "incendiary devices" were arrested near the protest before the march began. Reports say the two had so-called Molotov cocktails -- glass bottles filled with gasoline.

The Integrated Security Unit says there is no word of charges and would not specify what was seized from the pair.

On Friday almost 3,000 protesters marched through the city in a tense demonstration. Riot police aggressively moved into the crowd at one point and dragged a man into a building lobby, enraging the crowd.

Police held the crowd on University Avenue, far north of the security zone, before the protesters turned back.

At a Saturday morning news conference, the Toronto Community Mobilization Network said protesters intend to confront the heavily guarded security fence surrounding the summit site.

Rockefeller uses agent provocatuers to squash the Anti-War movement
   
A Rockefeller funded anti-globalization march filled with agent provocateurs with masks and gloves in Washington turned violent, with shop windows smashed as crowds protested on the eve of Saturday's International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings.  These sensationalized protests are the result of the CFR/Heinz infiltration of various protest groups to ensure that increased surveillance goes on with more control over United States Sovereignty.

Dirty Tricks Revisited

Posted By Justin Raimondo On March 21, 2005 @ 12:00 am

In chronicling the crimes of the War Party, surely the worst, from a libertarian point of view – excluding large-scale war crimes committed on the ground in Iraq – are those that are even now inflicting fatal wounds on our political system here at home. War, as the 19th century American liberal Randolph Bourne famously put it, is the health of the State. Wartime militarizes and regiments every aspect of life, from the political culture to the economic and purely personal. War expands that which ought to remain constricted, and unleashes that which is properly chained by custom and constitution. It corrupts the old republican virtues of modesty and austerity, and replaces them with the crude and often cruel vices of Imperial Rome: extreme violence, extravagance, and arrogance bordering on hubris. The law, once rigid and unbending, becomes elastic in the hands of wartime bureaucrats, who reinterpret it – or ignore it – in the name of the “national emergency.” While noble men once debated in the Senate and set the course of the republican ship of state, in wartime, debate is minimized if not entirely ended, and the public square is given over to gaggles of conspirators. Parties meet in secret conclave, where intrigues are the only item on the agenda and all live in the shadow of assassins – including character assassins.

In a “democratic” empire, as opposed to the later Roman version, it isn’t very often necessary to round up one’s political opponents and simply slap them in jail or throw them into the arena with a couple of hungry lions. There are more efficient, and ultimately more effective, ways to crush anyone who gets in the way of the powers that be, and this is where the fine art of character assassination comes in. I discussed this to some extent in my last column, but as it happens, a far clearer and much more important case has come up since that illustrates the corrosive effects of Empire on American liberty.

I thought I’d seen everything when it came to smearing and otherwise attempting to discredit journalists and others perceived as “unpatriotic” opponents of American foreign policy – the entrapment of Scott Ritter, the libeling of George Galloway, and the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame all come immediately to mind, all of them underhanded in their own special way. But a March 17 Washington Post story by Howard Kurtz had even me gasping with incredulity:

“Someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to produce a document accusing journalist and activist William Arkin of serving as a spy for Saddam Hussein.

“The Pentagon says the supposed Defense Intelligence Agency cable is a forgery. Arkin says it’s ‘chilling’ and is demanding an investigation. The NBC News military analyst says he became aware of the bogus document when a Washington Times reporter called about the spying allegation and sent him a copy.”

According to Kurtz, the document is decked out with the “classified” insignia and contains all the right military jargon. He cites an excerpt of what purports to be a cable from an intelligence operative in the field:

“‘Preliminary reporting … indicates possible U.S. citizen William Arkin received monthly stipend for period 1994-1998 to report on quote United Nations Special Commission activities unquote. Entry in SSO [special security organization] ledger captured in Baghdad, no additional information.’”

Arkin did investigate UNSCOM at that time, working as a consultant to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan – when he discovered the Clinton administration had used UNSCOM as a cover for eavesdropping on Iraqi communications. Clearly, Arkin was not a favorite of the U.S. intelligence community at this point, and the seriousness of the effort to “get” him is revealed in another cable excerpt quoted by Kurtz:

“‘CIA exploitation of Source 8230 from Office of President SH confirms Arkin traveled to Baghdad February 1998 and November 1998 to provide information about UNSCOM plans and to discuss Desert Fox targeting.’”

The careful effort to make the charges seem plausible – after all, Arkin was in Iraq circa 1994-1998 – is thrown out the window: Arkin did not enter Iraq in 1998, and this is easily checkable. Other errors, as in military addresses and abbreviations, are also present, along with one fascinating clue that could only be a joke, albeit one authored by a comedian with a very dark sense of humor: there is “a reference to ‘proctor canular procedures,’” reports Kurtz. “Canular, [Arkin] discovered through a Google translation service, means hoax in French.”

Isn’t it a funny coincidence how much the forgery of supposedly “classified” documents has played a key role in the propaganda war over Iraq?

First, you’ll remember, there were the Niger uranium forgeries: a series of documents that purported to show how Saddam Hussein had actively tried to procure weapons-grade uranium from the African nation of Niger, which President Bush indirectly cited in his 2003 State of the Union speech. It wasn’t until after the speech was delivered, however, and the president’s announcement had been allowed to have its full effect, that the International Atomic Energy Agency revealed the documents to be completely bogus – crude forgeries that contained so many internal mistakes that it took only a few hours with the Google search engine to debunk them.

Then there was that allegedly “classified” memo, cited by administration plant/male escort Jeff Gannon, supposedly describing a meeting of a CIA task force at which covert agent Valerie Plame had gotten her husband assigned to travel to Niger to look into Saddam’s alleged uranium-procurement efforts. In an interview with Plame’s husband, former Ambassador Joe Wilson, Gannon asked:

“An internal government memo prepared by U.S. intelligence personnel details a meeting in early 2002 where your wife, a member of the agency for clandestine service working on Iraqi weapons issues, suggested that you could be sent to investigate the reports. Do you dispute that?”

But this “internal government memo” turned out to have more than a few internal inconsistencies, not the least of which was that it purported to show attendees at the meeting who could not have possibly been present. Another forgery…

Now we have another phony set of documents, this time masquerading as a “raw” intelligence report, designed to accomplish pretty much what the Gannon “memo” was created for: to discredit a political opponent and knock an obstacle out of the War Party’s path. Arkin, who insists he’s an activist and not a journalist, has nonetheless uncovered some of the biggest war stories of recent years, including the Bush administration’s “contingency plans” for using nukes against seven countries and a secret Pentagon report detailing the real problems that would accompany an American invasion of Iraq. He works for Human Rights Watch and also does consultancy work for the Air Force: he’s a former Army intelligence analyst who has worked with Greenpeace, and Kurtz describes him as “an academic, an author, a newspaper columnist, and a talking head.” He is, in short, a formidable obstacle in the path of the War Party, one that would have to be blown out of the water by nothing less than a charge of high treason – spying for Saddam.

What seems clear enough is that a group inside the U.S. government was bent on war and engaged in activities that were not quite legal – and certainly not ethical – is an effort to drag us in, by hook or by crook. That they were prepared to lie, to cheat, to smear their enemies in any way possible – all of this is beyond dispute, and is currently being investigated by U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald, who is looking in to the Plame case as well as the forged Niger uranium documents. Gannon, the discredited “reporter” who tried to ambush Ambassador Wilson with yet another forged “classified” report, was reportedly questioned by Fitzgerald’s investigators, or at least he is listed as being among those subpoenaed. This latest attempt to hit someone over the head with a similarly “classified” bludgeon fits a by now all-too-familiar pattern, and a sinister one at that.

Perhaps the clearest indication that there’s a lot more fire where all this smoke is concerned is the blasé attitude of U.S. government spokesmen, who openly admit the documents leaked to Kurtz are fake. DoD’s Larry DiRita:

“We certainly appreciated the fact that the journalist who had it in his possession took the time to seek a better understanding of it before filing a story on it.”

Oh, I’ll just bet they appreciate it. But they probably don’t appreciate the pall of suspicion that rightly falls on their own operation or on the integrity of their own internal processes and procedures, of which the forgers showed such a unique understanding.

Yes, but when are they going to start the investigation? Uh, it looks like … never, according to Kurtz:

“DiRita said an investigation is ‘not likely. It is probably not possible to determine the source of such a matter, and I am unaware of any involvement in it by someone inside the department that would warrant a further look.’”

To begin with, an investigation is required precisely due to the unawareness of DiRita and his bosses. While they look the other way, someone is manufacturing “classified” Pentagon internal documents and feeding them to the media – an activity that surely endangers the national interest, if not the Constitution and the rule of law, in several ways. After all, if we encourage the market in faked “classified documents,” then their quality will only improve – and surely that won’t be good news for the Pentagon.

Secondly, listening to DiRita claim he just doesn’t know where to look, one doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He might start with the entire sub rosa apparatus set up by the neoconservative faction, a series of parallel policy and intelligence-gathering networks the existence of which is well-documented and rather extensive. As per their usual practice – remember “Team B,” which wildly overestimated Soviet economic and military strength? – the neocons set up their own bureaucratic fiefdom inside the government: the Office of Special Plans, the Iraq Survey Group, the army of contract consultants who were assigned to write up “talking points” for administration officials hard-pressed to reconcile the case for war with the facts.

Taken together, this propaganda operation constituted an open conspiracy to embroil us in a war with Iraq by any means necessary – including a campaign of “dirty tricks” to discredit and even legally endanger the antiwar movement.

The Arkin case is nothing new. During the Vietnam War, the government ran a program called “Cointelpro” to set up and entrap opponents of intervention into illegal activities, using provocateurs and other disruptive tactics. That the same neocon creeps are carrying out the same kind of dirty work in the same vicious cause is far from shocking. What’s surprising is that the dirty tricks get dirtier – but no trickier. I mean, why in heck did someone insert a dead giveaway phrase that gives the whole game away – like a clever naughty child who wants to be caught?

In reading excerpts of these various forgeries, from the famed Niger uranium papers to the latest smear against Arkin, I always wonder: who writes this stuff? A neocon Jayson Blair, or perhaps some smartass young ideologue acting out his fantasies on the government’s dime?

“There are a lot of reasons, I guess, why people would want to do me harm,” Arkin has said, and that is surely an understatement.

In an era when legions of ostensibly “conservative” commentators are being paid by the U.S. government to spout the official Washington party line – and even this is possible – the idea of a government-subsidized journalistic “dirty tricks” operation is all too plausible.

CSIS, Canada's leading neo-Nazi organization
http://ezralevant.com/2008/07/csis-canadas-leading-neonazi-o.html
By Ezra Levant on July 31, 2008 4:01 PM

I am sympethetic to CSIS these days. They have an enormously challenging job to keep Canada safe from real threats -- such as those being plotted continuously by foreign jihadis and their domestic agents. It is partly to CSIS's credit that the acts of terrorism Canada has endured in recent years have been low-level activities, difficult to detect in advance -- such as the fire-bombing of a Jewish synagogue by a Muslim radical in Edmonton; or the fire-bombing of the Jewish school library by Muslim radicals in Montreal; or the assault on a Jewish teenager by a Muslim radical in Calgary.

Perhaps it's precisely because CSIS is now engaged in a real battle against real threats that it no longer -- as far as we know publicly -- spends government time and money building up neo-Nazi organizations like the Heritage Front.

During the 1980s and 1990s, CSIS -- that is, the taxpayers of Canada -- helped organize and build Canada's leading group of white supremacists. Funding, strategy, organization support -- all of it came from the government.

Their point man was Grant Bristow. He was one of Canada's neo-Nazi leaders, who worked as an agent for CSIS. Without Bristow, Canada's neo-Nazis would have been less-organized, less prominent and more poorly led. Thanks, CSIS.


Now, I understand the need for undercover police work to stop some tough-to-fight crimes. And there might even have been a few cases where the other neo-Nazis that Bristow met were genuine threats of violence. They probably were. But there's an important moral and practical difference between sending in some infiltrator and building up the biggest neo-Nazi group in the country. At what point is the cure worse than the disease?

CSIS and Bristow didn't just track potentially violent criminals. They engaged in political dirty tricks. They attempted to take over the Reform Party when it was in its formative years. The "discovery" -- funny how that leaked out, eh? -- that CSIS's front organization was trying to take over the Reform Party was a political embarrassment for that party, and the unfair legacy of that accusation continues even to this day. That wasn't crime-fighting; that wasn't even the more nebulous "hate-fighting". That was using a government agent and a government front to smear a political opponent that both the Tories and the Liberals of the day hated. No wonder CSIS got the green light. (The fact that Warren Kinsella's "definitive" "history" of Canada's "hate organizations" strategically omitted mention of Bristow, adding him in only to later editions once Bristow was outed, is simply more proof of the partisan infection of Bristow's mission.)

I mention all of this because that key CSIS neo-Nazi organizer, Grant Bristow, had an Op-Ed in yesterday's National Post, defending... the Canadian Human Rights Commission, its patron the Canadian Jewish Congress and even Bernie "Burny" Farber. Besides a modest recitation of how brave he was, and how brave Burny is, Bristow gave his opinion that:

The Canadian Human Rights Commission has been at the forefront of the war against hate in this country for decades. I personally believe it played a key role in eviscerating Canadian hate groups in the 1980s and 1990s.

But that's simply not true. The CHRC didn't have the mandate to go after real criminals. And it certainly didn't shut down the Heritage Front -- that would have meant arresting Bristow, a CSIS agent himself. The Heritage Front unwound party because of its own incompetence, and largely because Bristow abandoned his leadership role there when his cover was blown. The CHRC really had nothing to do with it.

That's an obvious point to anyone who looks at the Canadian Human Rights Act itself. It doesn't deal with real acts of violence -- such as street fights, or death threats. It deals with "hate speech" on telephone lines and the Internet. That wasn't the problem with the Heritage Front -- indeed, it has never been the real "hate" problem in Canada, but a placebo for the human rights industry to noisily and showily deal with, while ignoring real threats.

Bristow knows nothing about the CHRC -- he was never a complainant under its sections; he never worked for it; in fact, the only possible relationship he has with it is as an offender of its thought crimes provision, he himself having generated an enormous amount of "hate", while undercover.

Bristow's Op-Ed -- besides being a self-serving piece of revisionist history (revisionism being something that the Heritage Front was always good at) -- conflates real crimes, crimes of violence, with "thought crimes" that the CHRC seeks to police. Whatever grains of truth lie at the bottom of Bristow's autohagiography apply to matters for real police to solve. The CHRC has no role in stopping violence. Bristow can marshall whatever "authority" he has towards discussions about policework, but his experiences in thought crimes policing are nil. If Bristow has any credibility, it's in regard to street crime, of which he has plenty of experience, not thought crimes.

But Bristow popping his head up now -- in a clearly ghost-written Op-Ed -- serves to remind us of some of the lessons of that awful CSIS experiment in neo-Nazism. Even with CSIS's police oversight, in the form of the Security Intelligence Review Committee, Bristow got out of control, and the Heritage Front started to engage in political adventures. Imagine how much worse it is at the CHRC, which has no oversight committee.

No need to imagine, actually -- you can see how contorted the CHRC has become, how self-righteous, how it violates its own laws constantly, how it has become a political weapon. Like CSIS creating Canada's biggest neo-Nazi group -- creating it, instead of fighting it! -- the CHRC has become Canada's largest disseminator of hate speech itself -- creating it, instead of fighting it. Richard Warman himself has admitted, under oath, to posting hundreds of messages on neo-Nazi websites, and other CHRC staff have also admitted to joining those neo-Nazi groups, under codenames like "Jadewarr". That's one of the reasons why the B'nai Brith renounced HRCs today -- the cure has become worse than the disease.

CSIS created Canada's biggest neo-Nazi group. The CHRC has generated more neo-Nazi hate than any other entity in Canada. You can even see examples of one "covert" neo-Nazi talking to another, each "investigating" the other. Anytime I see a conveniently-timed outburst from some racist group, especially if it's online, I immediately think of Bristow and Warman and the rest of them. (Example: the white pride "rally" of two dozen misfits in Calgary on the eve of the spectacularly embarrassing March 25th human rights tribunal hearing in Ottawa. Frankly, even Fred Phelps' looming visit to Red Deer smacks of an act of an agent provocateur.)

And Burny? He's at the heart of it. Because he need hate groups to be big and strong, if his anti-hate obsession is going to remain valid and important. (Correction: He needs impotent "hate groups", like the Heritage Front to be big and strong. There really are big and strong hate groups out there, like the Canadian Islamic Congress, but they're a little bit too big and strong for Burny to, well, do anything. When was the last time the CJC filed a "hate speech" complaint against a Jew-hating Muslim?)

There is a grotesque symbiosis between the Canadian Jewish Congress and the hate groups; they need each other, actually. The hate groups need a Jewish demon, who lives down to their worst stereotypes and prejudices. The CJC needs Nazi caricatures, to play on old wounds about the Holocaust -- not troublesome threats of a Muslim jihad.

I have copies of an old Maclean's magazine article from the 1960s in which the Grant Bristow of that day was hired by the Canadian Jewish Congress to help build the Canadian Nazi Party. Jewish money was actually used by the CJC to start a Nazi party. I'll get those scans in a useable form and try to upload them shortly. It's 40 years later, and Burny is still doing the same thing -- except that CSIS is paying the freight today.

I believe that going undercover to fight real criminals is sometimes appropriate -- subject to proper internal controls, to make sure the cure isn't worse than the disease. Those checks and balances weren't strong in Bristow's case, which is why he was able to smear the Reform Party politically. And the fact that CSIS actually built up the biggest neo-Nazi group in the country is another ethical problem. But at least SIRC, CSIS's Internal Affairs oversight committee, realized that (here's their report).

The CHRC doesn't have an internal affairs department, and as I've written before, it doesn't even have a code of ethics. That's the problem -- or one of them at least. The fact that a long-time neo-Nazi organizer like Bristow speaks out in the CHRC's defence isn't persuasive. Rather, it only points out the problems with government provocateurs like the CHRC.

G8 riots erupt in downtown Toronto
Black Bloc members gain national TV exposure
By Etan Vlessing
Share

June 26, 2010, 05:08 PM ET
TORONTO -- It wasn't the G20 Summit pictures world leaders wanted as they gathered Saturday in Toronto for a meeting of major industrialized and developing nations.

Canadian news networks offered non-stop breaking news coverage of black-clad demonstrators fighting pitch battles with tactical riot police in the city's downtown core.

As Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper wrapped the G8 Summit in Huntsville, Ontario, TV news crews followed masked figures in Canada's largest city as they attempted to break through police lines and a security fence meant to shield world leaders assembling for the larger G20 Summit.

Earlier in the afternoon, labor groups led a peaceful protest down University Avenue, past the American consulate, before turning westwards onto Queen Street and into Toronto's entertainment district.

But by around 3 p.m., TV cameras zeroed in on a few hundred members of the Black Bloc, a consortium of anarchists that made good on a threat to force their way towards the summit security zone.

As bricks and rocks flew, bank and shop windows were smashed and riot police donned gas masks and formed blockades.

Projectiles were also hurled at production vans belonging to the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and CTV, two TV networks with production headquarters within a stone's throw of the security zone.

There were also reports of news photographers being attacked, and their equipment damaged, as they attempted to take photos of the violent confrontation.

By 4 p.m., CNN correspondent Jeanne Meserve went live to point to a window at a Starbucks Coffee house on Queen Street with its storefront glass broken.

A visibly angry Toronto mayor David Miller told the CP24 news channel that rampaging demonstrators had rendered his city unrecognizable.

"People came here deliberately to commit this kind of act," he told the TV audience.

Canadian and foreign news networks attempted to cover the conclusion of the G8 gathering, and the progress of world leaders flying or driving into downtown Toronto for the G20 summit.

But as two police cruisers were set on fire at the corner of King and Bay, in the heart of the city's financial district, breathless TV news reporters and their camera crews moved about the downtown core to capture escalating skirmishes between police and protesters.

For days prior to the start of the G8 and G20 Summits, Canadian news reports were filled with accounts of around 12,000 police from across Canada taking up positions in downtown Toronto ahead of possible violent confrontations with protesters.

TV news channels covered a smaller protest Friday through the streets of downtown Toronto that went off without incident.

Who Controls The Black Bloc Anarchists?
Government Decides Who Protests At G20: Violent anarchists allowed to smash up buildings despite announcing target in advance, yet anti-poverty group barred from protesting
http://www.prisonplanet.com/who-controls-the-black-bloc-anarchists.html
Paul Joseph Watson

Thursday, April 2, 2009

The British authorities seemed to have little problem with allowing a group of violent black bloc anarchists smash up the RBS building while provoking police yesterday, despite the group announcing their target in advance, yet a legitimate anti-poverty organization has had its “accreditation” to protest at the G20 removed on the orders of Downing Street.

This once again underscores the completely undemocratic power of the government to decide who is allowed to protest against them and who is not. When you have to get permission from the government to exercise a God-given right, as in China or Russia, then we know we are already living in a police state. The freedom to protest is not one that has to be “accredited” by the state, a license to protest as it were, it is an innate human right.

Apparently, if you wear black hoods and scarves, smash up private property and provoke police, then that’s absolutely fine and you’ll be left largely untouched. But God forbid if you’re a middle of the road anti-poverty group that just wants to peaceably march down the street.

“An anti-poverty group expressed “outrage” after its accreditation to attend Thursday’s G20 summit was suddenly withdrawn on Wednesday,” reports the Telegraph.

“The World Development Movement said it had no idea why the decision was taken but claimed it was on the orders of 10 Downing Street.”

“The group, which was part of last weekend’s huge (and peaceful – ed) Put People First Alliance which held a rally in London, said the Foreign Office received a note from 10 Downing Street telling it to revoke the accreditation.”

Benedict Southworth, the group’s director, said that the decision was part of the government’s plan to “stage-manage events and prevent voices of dissent and disagreement being heard.”

The black bloc anarchist assault on the Royal Bank of Scotland building yesterday certainly had an air of being stage-managed. The target was announced in advance, the authorities knew that the building was a prime target, and yet it was the only one in the street not boarded up. A cafe across the street was boarded up and yet the RBS building was left completely vulnerable to attack.


Stage-managed? Press photographers outnumber anarchists as the RBS siege is perfectly “produced” for a live television audience.

Cue a relatively small gaggle of black-bloc anarchists, followed by an similarly sized press corps to photograph every angle of every smashed window, and you have the makings of a stage-managed event to instantly be consumed by the watching middle classes thus enlisting their support for a police state crackdown. In this instance, the police stood back and let them do pretty much whatever they liked, which is highly suspicious within itself, but the week is far from over and a wider crackdown could ensue now that public acquiescence has been garnered through repeated footage showing the hostility of the anarchists.

We’re not saying for a minute that every anarchist group is working at the behest of the authorities as provocateurs, nor that the majority are not legitimate protesters expressing their right to free speech, but as we have documented, this particular black bloc sect are at best completely infiltrated by provocateurs who can routinely be relied upon to provide the media with violent footage with which to demonize legitimate protesters at every major global summit stretching back nearly two decades.

To emphasize our point that a lot of these people are merely hired thugs, whenever someone asks them what they are actually proposing to replace the evils of capitalism, they have no idea, as the video below highlights.


Meanwhile, people who actually have a defined cause and merely want to exercise their right to free speech as a public platform to draw attention to the issue, and have already proven they are a peaceable group, are barred from doing so by the government removing their “accreditation” to protest.

Why are the authorities so keen on stifling peaceful protesters while giving free reign to people who dress up like terrorists, attack buildings and provoke cops? Whose interests do the violent actions of the black bloc benefit? The interests of the general public in using free speech as a means of political change? Or the interests of the authorities in providing the perfect pretext with which to crush and outlaw that free speech?

You can’t overthrow the entire system by smashing one bank and starting a bonfire. Real political change takes generations of struggle, decades of building respected educational platforms, and a gargantuan grass-roots movement focused on taking power on the local level and expanding upwards. Throwing a brick through a window isn’t going to achieve anything other than making the vast majority of the general public despise you even more, and support the very systems of power that you are supposedly opposing.

We have documented numerous different occasions where the leadership of the black bloc anarchists were actually working with the authorities to provide a pretext for a police state crackdown.

Following the SPP protests in Canada two years ago, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.

Video shows two of the provocateurs pick up rocks and try to incite violence before they are outed as cops by legitimate demonstrators. The two thugs then tried to slip behind police lines before their fellow officers were forced to stage their arrest. Again, the fact that they were cops in disguise was later admitted by authorities. Watch the video.


Alex Jones’ film Police State 2: The Takeover exposed how the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities during the violent 1999 WTO protests in Seattle.

The authorities declared a state of emergency, imposed curfews and resorted to nothing short of police state tactics in response to a small minority of hostile black bloc hooligans. Police allowed the black bloc to run riot in downtown Seattle while they concentrated on preventing the movement of peaceful protestors. The film presents clear evidence that the black bloc anarchist group was actually controlled by the state and used to demonize peaceful protesters. Watch the video below.




At the WTO protests in Genoa 2001 a protestor was killed after being shot in the head and run over twice by a police vehicle. The Italian Carabinere also later beat on peaceful protestors as they slept, and even tortured some, at the Diaz School. It later emerged that the police fabricated evidence against the protesters, claiming they were anarchist rioters, to justify their actions. Some Carabiniere officials have since come forward to say they knew of infiltration of the so called black bloc anarchists, and that fellow officers acted as agent provocateurs.

At the Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami in late November 2003, more provocateuring was evident. The United Steelworkers of America calling for a congressional investigation, stated that the police intentionally caused violence and arrested and charged hundreds of peaceful protestors. The USWA suggested that billions of dollars supposedly slated for Iraq reconstruction funds are actually being used to subsidize “homeland repression” in America.

The leadership of the black bloc has been completely usurped by the authorities and anyone who still professes to be a member of the group is either supremely naive or completely stupid. To dress up like terrorists, all in black with ski masks and bandanas (like the police) immediately sends out a negative message to the watching public and demonizes legitimate protesters.

More violence is expected throughout the rest of the week in London and if the police are ordered to institute a brutal crackdown on peaceful demonstrators then we can thank the black bloc anarchists, both the provocateurs and the useful idiots who ape their violence, for providing them with the perfect pretext to do so.

We are Illegal: Black Bloc Manifestation

Chicago, March 14, 2009

Gather at 11, Spokescouncil @ NOON during rally followed by march

We are an affinity group making this call in hopes of meeting others at the mass Chicago anti-war/pro-immigrant demo in Pilsen on March 14 to form an anarchist black bloc.

We've been too busy and too frustrated to join the planning committee, and to be honest we never really believed we would be taken seriously.

The ruling classes have again revealed their cruelty and incompetence. The call for the dissolution of government and the dismantling of capitalism has taken on a fresh urgency. The current Crisis and the coming insurrection demand radical preparation and experimentation here and now.

Economic crisis spreads and deepens — it becomes social, political, moral. The take-over of Republic Windows whetted our appetites for possibilities beyond the Law. . All around us we are inspired by our neighbors' collective and adventurous responses to the Crisis and global resistance to occupation and deportation. We see neighborhoods plotting to resist the International Olympic Committee, and we wish to contribute by opening new currents to feed and spread social struggle. We are a part of the gathering storm.

It is important to recognize the massive police presence at such events and the hindrance they cause, but that is no reason to stay away or hide. Our bodies desire space and the total freedom of movement. We are attracted to crowds because we need to scream and shout, we want to break our isolation and become powerful.

The black bloc is an expression of our power, an organic outgrowth of our experiences together. In the mass, anonymous crowd we find our individuality, we hide in plain sight. In becoming whatever we are becoming ourselves.

Together we've cooked and shared food, thrown parties, traveled across the country, sneaked past ticket counters and lost ourselves in orgy. We've run together from police, confronted racists, stormed churches, disrupted conventions and lingered flirtatiously nose-to-nose after a kiss. We have yet to truly see everything of which we are capable together.

The Weather Underground were used to target The Black Panthers, SDS, and other non-violent and peaceful protestors. The Weather Underground killed Fred Hampton by giving the Chicago Police a pretext for targeted assassinations.

Larry Grathwohl on Ayers' plan for American re-education camps and the need to kill millions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWMIwziGrAQ



Eyewitness to the Ayers Revolution
http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/eyewitness-to-the-ayers-revolution/
Posted By Bob Owens On October 28, 2008

When Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn led the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground in 1969, a chance meeting led Army veteran Larry Grathwohl into joining the group. Grathwohl served as a courier, running messages between the group’s leadership (called the “Weather Bureau”) and individual cells that were to carry out attacks.

Grathwohl was also an informant for the FBI.

In an interview from the 1982 documentary No Place To Hide that recently surfaced, Grathwohl discussed what the Weathermen intended to do after overthrowing the U.S. government, including what they would do with those Americans who refused to embrace communism [1].

I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

Twenty-six years later, I caught up with Larry Grathwohl, and asked him about the Weathermen, their leaders then and now, and what he thinks about the relationship between Bill Ayers and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Pajamas Media: You stated in your interview in No Place to Hide that you wanted us to “imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.” A lot of people have now had the opportunity to listen to you, and contemplate the horrors these people planned. Can you recall who these people are by name, and who the ringleaders of this plan were?

Larry Grathwohl: Conversations regarding this occurred in Cincinnati, Detroit, Flint, and Buffalo. Participants included Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Mark Rudd, Linda Evans, Jeff Jones, and many others.

Pajamas Media: Was this merely an academic matter to them, or were they serious about killing 25 million Americans that would not bend to their political will?

Larry Grathwohl: I suppose you could consider this a purely academic discussion in that the Weathermen never had the opportunity to implement their political ends. However, I can assure you that this was not the case. There was an absolute belief that they, along with the international revolutionary movement, would cause the collapse of the United States and that they would be in charge. Nixon was of great concern and how his end would be conducted. This may sound absurd in today’s context, but the Weatherman believed they would succeed.

Pajamas Media: Did they ever devise a cover story to explain to the rest of America how roughly one in ten disappeared?

Larry Grathwohl: When I suggested that this might be a difficult proposition they looked at me like I had three heads. They would be in charge! They would be in control! Who would oppose them? Lambs to the slaughter I guess.

Pajamas Media: Were any of those Weathermen involved in concocting this plan particularly excited or enthusiastic about the death camps, or was it merely a means to an end?

Larry Grathwohl: Of course they were enthusiastic as it was representative of the success of “the revolution.”

Pajamas Media: Scattered news accounts on the Internet note that you were instrumental in foiling Weather Underground attacks in February  of 1970, in Detroit. The Weathermen built two bombs targeting the Detroit Police Officers’ Association (DPOA) building and the 13th Precinct. Were the goals of these attacks symbolic property damage as were some other Weathermen attacks, or were these targets selected to kill police officers?

Larry Grathwohl: The instructions I received from Billy Ayers was that the bombs to be used in Detroit must have shrapnel (fence staples, specifically) and fire potential (propane bottles). The intention was to kill police officers.

Pajamas Media: One of the Detroit bombs was to be placed on the side of the DPOA building, and the blast was likely to cause damage to the adjacent Red Barn Restaurant, which had mostly African-American customers. Who ordered the attack, and what did he say when you told him that innocent civilians would be killed?

Larry Grathwohl: When I objected to Billy Ayers that more innocent people would be killed in the restaurant, he replied, “Innocent people have to die in a revolution.” Billy also acknowledged during a criticism session in Buffalo that Bernadine placed the bomb at the Park Police Station which resulted in the death of Police Officer McDonnell.

Pajamas Media: Bill Ayers came out of hiding around 1980, became an college professor, and has served on numerous boards and foundations. Do you think he’s changed in his radicalism?

Larry Grathwohl: Has Billy changed? I hardly think so.

Pajamas Media: If conditions permitted, do you think Ayers would still engage in violence to further a political agenda?

Larry Grathwohl: He has acknowledged his support of anti-American groups and stated he felt that the Weathermen hadn’t done enough.

Pajamas Media: Do you consider Bill Ayers an attempted mass murderer?

Larry Grathwohl: I’m not certain Billy is a mass murder; his ego just wants him to be in charge. Note that Billy never does anything that involves risk. He has no problem allowing his women to do the evil task, Diane Oughton and even Bernardine, but never him. As for what he might do, hasn’t he said he doesn’t rule out the possibility of future bombings? [Ayers said he didn't "want to discount the possibility" in this New York Times [2] article from  September 11, 2001. -- Ed.]

Pajamas Media: Would you let your children attend a college or university class taught by Ayers or his wife, Bernadine Dohrn? What would you tell parents who have had their children exposed to Ayers’ academic programs, like the Small Schools Workshop?

Larry Grathwohl: As for Billy’s ideas on education, isn’t it apparent? Reading, writing, and arithmetic aren’t important! Radicalism is what’s important. Fits right in with the Billy Ayers view of creating mindless soldiers to follow his commands — where best to lay the foundations of a revolution than with the young?

Pajamas Media: Do you think there is there any way that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama could not have known that Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist? Is there any reason that the American people should accept Barack Obama’s newest excuse about his relationship with Bill Ayers, where Obama claimed that he thought Ayers was “reformed”?

Larry Grathwohl: If we are to believe Mr. Obama, he just didn’t know Billy was as radical as he apparently is. Really? Just like he didn’t know the Rev. Wright was as radical as he is? Obama is a politician and he wants me to believe that he never discussed politics with the Rev Wright or Billy Ayers?

Mr. Grathwohl concluded the interview with a question of his own.

“Have you seen the [Bill] O’Reilly attempts to interview Billy? He called the police to ‘protect’ him! Doesn’t surprise me a bit: Billy needs others to stand up, not him. He’s too important! Do you think his new book [Race Course Against White Supremacy [3], co-author Bernardine Dohrn] has something to do with his position? I bet we hear a lot from Billy and Bernardine after the election. Especially if Obama wins.”

Vandals mar summit protests in Toronto




TORONTO – Black-clad demonstrators broke off from a crowd of peaceful protesters at the World Summit, torching police cruisers and smashing windows with baseball bats and hammers.

Police with shields and clubs earlier pushed back another small group of demonstrators who tried to head south toward the security fence surrounding the perimeter of the Group of Twenty global economic summit site. Some demonstrators hurled bottles at police.

"This isn't our Toronto and my response is anger," Toronto Mayor David Miller told CP24 television. "Every Torontonian should be outraged by this."

The roving band of protesters in black balaclavas shattered shop windows for blocks, including at police headquarters, then shed some of their black clothes, revealing other garments, and continued to rampage through downtown Toronto.

Protesters torched at least two police cruisers in different parts of the city.

Police in riot gear and riding bikes formed a blockade, keeping protesters from approaching the security fence a few blocks south of the march route. Police closed a stretch of Toronto's subway system along the protest route and the largest shopping mall downtown closed after the protest took a turn for the worse.

A stream of police cars headed to Toronto to reinforce security there after the smaller Group of Eight summit ended in Huntsville, Ontario. The vandalism occurred just blocks from where President Barack Obama and other world leaders were meeting and staying.

"These images are truly shocking to Canadians," Canadian Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said in a statement. "We are taking all measures necessary to ensure Canadians, delegates, media and international visitors remain safe."

Previous major world summits also have attracted massive, raucous and sometimes destructive protests by anti-globalization forces.

As of Saturday afternoon, 40 summit-related arrests had been since June 18, police said, with security being provided by an estimated 19,000 law enforcement officers drawn from all regions of Canada. The security costs are estimated at more than US$900 million.

Saturday's protest march, sponsored by labor unions and dubbed family friendly, was the largest demonstration planned during the weekend summits. Its organizers had hoped to draw a crowd of 10,000, but only about half that number turned out on what was a rainy day.

Toronto Police Sgt. Tim Burrows said before Saturday's protest that authorities were pleased by the demonstrators' orderly behavior. Hundreds of protesters moved through Toronto's streets Friday, but police in riot gear intercepted them, preventing them from getting near the summit security zone downtown.

Ontario's provincial government quietly passed a regulation earlier this month allowing police to arrest anyone who refuses to show identification or submit to searches if they come within five meters (five yards) of a security fence.

Toronto's downtown resembles a fortress, with a big steel and concrete fence protecting the summit site.

Previous global summit protests have turned violent. In 1999, 50,000 protesters shut down World Trade Organization sessions in Seattle as police fired tear gas and rubber bullets. There were some 600 arrests and $3 million in property damage. One man died after clashes with police at a G-20 meeting held in London in April 2009.

At the September G-20 summit in Pittsburgh, police fired canisters of pepper spray and smoke and rubber bullets at marchers.

Digler, those "people" are not consistent. They, on the surface, bitch and complain about the inequalities of "capitalism" yet fail in their proposed solutions (they have none except for a different kind of enslavement -- one that better benefits them, supposedly). Exactly like the vast majority of the G20 protesters, they seem to want some form of communism instead of some form of capitalism. Bullshit! You cannot replace what is really corporatism/fascism with communism/socialism and expect the injustice to go away.

Freedom or death! That's our only choice, because slavery is not an option IMO.

I totally believe that the "Black Bloc" is an establishment creation but that's beside the point because 99.9% of protesters haven't got a clue in hell what they're actually fighting against.

Screw the agents, screw the commies, screw the socialists. Long live freedom!

Looks like our job is not done ;)

There was a time when all of us did not know what the heck we were fighting against.

Someone out there threw out some life preservers of truth, then others gave us more strength in our beliefs, then we struggled to grow to rise up above the glue of propaganda, lies, and media mind control that keeps us trapped in perpetual confusion, deception, and distraction...

According to Floyd, they have a "Snatch Squad" (sounds ominous)

A snatch squad is a team of cops who are behind the primary line of defenders. When a particulat person is targtted for arrest in a riot, such as a provacatuer, or someone who is the pbvious leader of a group, or someone who has harmed officers, the snatch team will move along behind the defensive line, tap the officers on the shoulder to indicate to break ranks, run out, grab the target, and fold back in while the defensive line folds out with them to create a defensive echelon. When the snatch team folds back in so does the echelon, and the defenive line is intact again.
The resistance starts here. Unfortunately, the entire thing is moving beyond the intellectual infowar. I vow I will not make an overt rush at violent authority, until authority makes it's violent rush at me and you. I will not falter, I will not die in this course. For that is how they win.

Hey Nazi police...guys wake the F up. The same banksters that paid for your and the Nazi's uniforms also firebombed Dresden till 800,000 were burned alive in less than 48 hours. Just realize that your puppet masters only use you temporarily, feeding your adreneline to then just stick you in another Dresden...the plan is all laid out and you are taking the bait:

The Grand Architect of the Denver International Airport has a Grand plan:

PHASE I: ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS


PHASE II:
CONTROL OF ALL RESOURCES BY THE STATE STORMTROOPERS.


PHASE III:
THE ILLUMINATI STAB THE STORMTROOPERS IN THE BACK WITH A MIND CONTROLLED "NEW WORLD ORDER" CULTURE REVOLUTION.


PHASE IV:
NANOTECH/HARMONICS CONTROLS THE MINDS OF ALL HUMANS.
SOVEREIGN COUNTRIES' IDENTITIES AND DEFENSES ARE EXTINGUISHED AS FLAGS/WEAPONS ARE DESTROYED BY THE ONE WORLD ORDER SAVIOR.


All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

A snatch squad is a team of cops who are behind the primary line of defenders. When a particulat person is targtted for arrest in a riot, such as a provacatuer, or someone who is the pbvious leader of a group, or someone who has harmed officers, the snatch team will move along behind the defensive line, tap the officers on the shoulder to indicate to break ranks, run out, grab the target, and fold back in while the defensive line folds out with them to create a defensive echelon. When the snatch team folds back in so does the echelon, and the defenive line is intact again.

Makes sense.

Jun 26 - Anarchists protesting the G20 summit in Toronto set fire to and smashed abandoned police cars, while riot police donned gas masks and arrested taunting protesters. (No reporter narration)

"Abandoned" Convenient. Thought they all had little bicycles anyway.
Wow, That's f*cked up

So they abandon cars right in the middle of the street in front of the cameras and then the Red Team comes in (completely protected by the Nazi control grid of tyranny that is tagging and bagging anything that moves) and starts the fires. Then they back off and Rothschild's AP/Reuters gets a great photo opportunity to feed the Tavistock propaganda system.

That sound about right?

Naw, that's not right at all.  I been here watching these goofs all day.  They hide out in a crowd, wait til the cops are pulled off somewhere, then pop out and bust windows and stuff, then run away and rip off their black clothes and hide in plain sight.  I tried talking to a couple of them and tell them they aint getting anything accomplished, one guy just called me a fag and told me to shove my useless infowars stickers and Alex Jones DVD's up my ass.  Me and my buddies have been here non-stop for two days, and I hate to say it, but the cops haven't been bad, and I have been looking, believe me.
