Painting Them As "Violent Anarchists" Regardless of Who They Really Are - Eddie Yuen


The Diaz school was alleged by the police to be the headquarters of the "international Black Bloc" and thus fair game for reprisals. In fact, it was one of many spaces donated by the city at the last minute to house the tens of thousands of protestors in Genoa. While it may be true that some real Black Bloc were there..., it is +important to remember that anyone (myself and everyone I know included) could have been there when the bloodbath began. I saw on TV one young man with a Catholic anti-debt shirt being taken out, a 62 year old man who was inside on an errand was beaten, and a reporter for a conservative Italian paper had both arms broken.
