Just another bunch of “alternative facts” and speculations without any proof.
Marcus Oliveira Spiegelma

It is true, the history of anarchists inside of the Socialist and Communist movements in America is well documented, going back over one hundred years.

The Haymarket affair took place long before the Bolshevik revolution, certainly predates gamer-gate.

What is also clearly true, however, is that almost without fail, each time protest movements have arisen in the Untied States, be it in the 19th or 20th centuries, or more recently, there have been attempts, by business, government or law enforcement entities to in some way infiltrate and co-opt those movements, cause violence and have it tar the entire group.

You don’t have to go back to Sacco & Vanzetti, or to the strike breakers in Colorado. Just recently in Chicago. The NATO 3.

What is also true is that from Thoreau to MLK there is also a very American tradition of peaceful, nonviolent protest, civil disobedience. And we would appreciate that those cowards whom feel the need to resort to violence, to whatever end, respect that difference, or shut the fuck up.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
