Police and the black bloc (english)
01 Apr 2003
Modified: 02 Apr 2003
The Police routinely surround groups they percieve as Black Bloc, its time for a change in tactics
As we have all seen at innumerable protests, most recently the March 39th, the police routinely surround people they perceive to be mambers of the Black Bloc. They perceive black sweatshirts and bandanas as a threat and devote large numbers of officers to these individuals.
This is actually good. We all know how the police are going to react and we can stratigize around this. If you are interested in spending an entire demonstration surrounded by police, and in doing so insuring that those police officers will not be used in other locations continue to dress in black blocesque clothes. Tying up police resources is a perfectly useful, if boring thing to do.
If however you are interested in not having police around you all the time, try something else. Dress as clowns, start a clown bloc! Use your imagination.

How appropriate (english)
01 Apr 2003
By all means, dress as clowns. How perfectly appropriate.
Support our REAL troops (english)
01 Apr 2003
We should support the brave men and women who fight to defend our lives and liberties. Unfortunately, government paid hitmen, illegally invading - thereby turning their country's citizens into valid targets - hardly qualify.

Support those reclaiming the streets who dare defy tyranny. Support our REAL troops. Back the Black Bloc.
What the Blac Bloc Really Needs.. (english)
02 Apr 2003
The Blac Bloc really needs to paint bullseyes on the tops of their black hooded sweatshirts so the police have a good target to strike at when they are stomping the shit out of these whiney little rich kids.... Hopefully mom and pop have the health insurance and tuition bills paid up.
Question : Is it true that most ( not all, I don't want to stereotype ) female members of the Blac Bloc are L.U.G.'s ?? ( L esbians U ntil G raduation ). Graduation = Lady Bic and a male ( preferibly rich ) partner....Anyway just spouting off...And remember, "W" Rocks..
