Beginning with the major demonstrations in Seattle, a group of masked young men and women dressed in black, have taken part in the anti-globalization protests that have taken place in Seattle, Philadelphia and now in Los Angeles. They have been called the “black block” by the media and they have claimed responsibility for smashing “corporate property” such as the windows of multinational corporations like McDonalds and Starbucks. These actions have been condemned widely by the police, the media and even in the activist community as disruptive and provocative. Many of them claim to be anarchists but there are other activists who say that they have misinterpreted the ideals of nonhierarchical, consensus-based organizing.

Guests:

  • Tim Ream, with Pickaxe Productions
  • Kevin Danaher, co-founder of the human rights group Global Exchange and editor of ??Downsize This.
  • Rachel Jackson, an organizer from the Bay area, working on issues of police brutality.
  • Alicia Littletree, a member of Northern California Earth First.
