New forms of anarchism seen in Harvard Square (english)
27 Sep 2003
Modified: 29 Sep 2003
They don't look like anarchists!
Individuals calling themselves anarchists have been gathering in Harvard Square for more than two months now, perplexing local anarchists. "They don't look like real anarchists," said a local black masked anarchist, "and they seem to have come from out of nowhere!"

Asked why he was not wearing a black mask, one of the protesters affirmed that he was an "Anarcho-Nudist," prefering to feel the breeze upon his face. Another participant, fairly ordinary looking, stated that he was an "Anarcho-Pissed-Off-Liberal." Several "Anarcho-Republicans" came to his defense stating, "hell, under fascism nothing makes sense, so why should we?"

All of this free form anarchism has been sending traditional anarchists into a state of confusion. One traditional anarchist stated, "these people are causing anarchy, we need some order in the anarchist movement, we can't let just anyone call himself an anarchist!" Far more disturbing is the growing trend that these anarchists are friendly to liberals, greens, progressives, and even anti-Bush conservatives. When asked why, an Anarcho-Nudist replied, "we're in a war against fascism, you don't win a war by fighting against the opponents of your enemy. You win a war by uniting with the opponents of your enemy."

"This is not class warfare," stated a black masked anarchist. "Associating with liberals is class-treason!"

Asked to comment, an Anarcho-Pissed-Of-Liberal replied, "would like some lemonade or a bumper sticker?" An Anarcho-Buddhist joined in and offered a vegan meal.

Liberal Anarchists are Confusing the Issue! (english)

I represent "anarchists for the mask", a fiscally conservative anarchist syndicate for responsible governemnt spending. I just wanted to chime in to assert our group's individuality and independence from the other so-called Anarchists. Today we'll be the ones wearing the black Y-fronts on our heads.
