Though Wikipedia describes the “Black bloc” as a protesting tactic, I disagree. This group is mainly socialist anarchists, who dress in all black from head to toe, violently protest by blowing up cars and breaking windows, which ironically protest against the fascist views they often support or practice through their own actions. Yes, they protest against banks, multi-national corporations, and other Leftist views, yet they dictate to others in the streets by their violent, street-fighting presence the very tyranny in which they protest against.
The most recent flare-up of the Black Block was during May 2012:
- The Black Bloc
- Occupy Anarchists in San Fran Post Video of Themselves Smashing Windows & Causing Mass Destruction
- Occupy Anarcho-Fascists Post Own Video of Themselves Destroying SF Neighborhood
- Video Promoting Black Bloc Anarchists Proves ‘Occupy Unmasked’ Got It Right
