It's a float they built for the purpose of setting fire to. It's made of foam, so as to create a nice long-lasting burn with lots of visible smoke. That is a photo of a peaceful demonstration that has been framed to make it look violent

Booga booga booga!

The bulletin, which was obtained by CNN, says that anarchists could try to use improvised explosive devices.

So could the police. So could the pizza delivery guy. Given our recent history that's just as likely. The only anarchists who might hypothetically do this are the ones who give the fewest farks about politics.

targeting corporations and identifying hotels where delegates were staying.

"targeting" and "identifying" oh no! How dare people consider protesting at a place where they might expect to find the people they disagree with.

The bulletin says that law enforcement agencies believe most protesters at the conventions will obey laws and not commit violent acts, but that anarchists are the most likely exceptions.

Therefore anyone who gets arrested is automatically a terrorist.

materials that could be used to make improvised explosive devices,

such as half the cleaning agents in your house

Anarchists often research potential targets, according to the bulletin.

So sinister!

The bulletin says the suspected anarchists conducted surveillance and did research on the Internet

Research. ON THE INTERNET. What is this world coming to, when people who want to acquire information look in places where they could expect to find that information?

They're probably Americans because they have the "really awful, totally-missing-the-point" bloc. I found the same site as THX 1138 so it's definitely older than 2010. Actually, the image name on THX 1138's site's version is "ny-alleged-anarchists-82804" so if 8/28/04 is a date then that suggests the 2004 RNC. Also, there's a version of it that has a Life magazine watermark, but I can't find the original.

Possibly falls under illegal burning or solid waste disposal.

Maybe, depending on what their permit allowed. Either way, that's no more than a misdemeanor and a fine

It also says that, as of March, the FBI had intelligence indicating individuals from New York "planned to travel to Tampa and attempt to close" all of the Tampa Bay-area bridges during the Republican National Convention next week.

So Rays attendance won't be affected then.

These people are pussies. Protests are violence. Anything these guys do is violence, and threatening to them. So naturally run the most ridiculous picture of anarchists protesting in any context for a speculative piece about what might happen.
 
2012-08-23 09:44:38 AM
Okay, it must have been the 2004 RNC. From Wikipedia: For the most part, the march proceeded peacefully and without violence. The only major incident during the march occurred when some individuals of unknown affiliations torched a large dragon float between Madison Square Garden and the Fox News building. The float turned into a huge fireball, and the march was halted until firefighters were able to clear the street of debris. There's video of it (I searched 2004 rnc dragon float).

annnd here's another article about it. Apparently the group was called "Greene Dragon" appropriately enough.

looks like they had a profile article in Village Voice. I don't see any possible way they were anarchists.
"...the group draws heavily on the iconography of the Founding Fathers; Their name comes from the tavern where the Boston Tea Party was planned and members can be found at most rallies dressed in a three-point hats (with feathers) and homemade red, white, and blue colonial costumes ("A lot of love goes into them.")."

Anarchism is what you get when you realize that the only way a nonhierarchical, libertarian society could sustain itself is if the individuals within it thought and cooperated as socialists. Everyone is fallible, so compassion, respect, and mutual aid must be universal values. No vanguard will lead the way to the new world; it's everyone's problem, right, and responsibility to help create better societies and organizations.

THX 1138: Are Anarchists All White Racists?


Seriously?
Because anarchists are probably the most hardcore anti-white supremacist people around. I don't think physically attacking/defending themselves from neo-nazis and their cop friends wins much points in the "white racist" demographic.
But I mean, this image obviously supports white supremacists.

hm kind of. People naturally form small and generally non-hierarchical groups and communities, in absence of outside coercion. Anarchism as a philosophy/worldview is necessary to ensure they act in solidarity to support each other, so the small % of the population that's sociopaths isn't able to use intimidation and fear to play people against each other and gain power. If you can understand the concept that we have to support each other's freedom in order to ensure our own then that's basically Anarchism.

One of my former co-workers was a member of Anti-Racist Action in the days when neo-Nazis tried to establish a presence in a low-rent part of Toronto.

The neo-Nazis failed.
