News :: DNC
Anarchists Expected at Dem. Convention
08 Apr 2004
The Washington Times article about anarchists and the DNC.
BOSTON, April 8 (UPI) -- Boston police and the FBI are bracing for showdowns with violent anarchist groups at July's Democratic National Convention, the Boston Herald said Thursday.

From monitoring Web sites and printed material, FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz said it's apparent there will be unruliness.

"What we're hearing from some groups is to direct violence at persons, including law enforcement," she said.

Authorities are reviewing past protests to gear up for the convention. At the 2000 Philadelphia Republican Convention, the violence was widespread with protesters using urine- and acid-filled squirt guns on police, lighting fires and blocking traffic.

Some of the protest groups are becoming more organized and more violent, such as the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front -- known to wear full riot gear, lock themselves to buildings, use slingshots to shoot flames, bleach and feces, and call in bomb threats.

Same Rhetoric As Usual

It was obvious to everyone involved in this project that it was only
a matter of time before the war of lies came down upon us. This sort
of defamation and slander has preceded every major anti-capitalist protest
in recent history. Their main motivation for discrediting and attacking
anarchists is to provide justification and cover for massive police and
state brutality that will surely accompany this (and most every other)
sizable anti-capitalist convergence. These lies will be used to legitimize
attacking and arresting the people of Boston and those who come to aid
in the defense of our community from the invasion of paramilitary police
directed to protect the political bosses from the people they claim to

This is all fake. This "Upper Crust" person is either a cop or a Stalinist boob.

A fake article? There's a link to the Washington Post. They actually did run the article. Or did you mean the article is full of lies? Well, what do you expect from the mainstram media? Don't blame UpperCrust for that. Presumably, he/she was just reposting the article here to let us know what was going on.
