Who Controls The Black Bloc Anarchists?

Government Decides Who Protests At G20: Violent anarchists allowed to smash up buildings despite announcing target in advance, yet anti-poverty group barred from protesting

The British authorities seemed to have little problem with allowing a group of violent black bloc anarchists smash up the RBS building while provoking police yesterday, despite the group announcing their target in advance, yet a legitimate anti-poverty organization has had its “accreditation” to protest at the G20 removed on the orders of Downing Street.

This once again underscores the completely undemocratic power of the government to decide who is allowed to protest against them and who is not. When you have to get permission from the government to exercise a God-given right, as in China or Russia, then we know we are already living in a police state. The freedom to protest is not one that has to be “accredited” by the state, a license to protest as it were, it is an innate human right.

Apparently, if you wear black hoods and scarves, smash up private property and provoke police, then that’s absolutely fine and you’ll be left largely untouched. But God forbid if you’re a middle of the road anti-poverty group that just wants to peaceably march down the street.


Do Agents Provocateurs Exist?

There can be no doubt that, at the G20 protests, at times the police were unnecessarily violent towards non-violent protestors. Yet at other times they were puzzlingly non-violent towards inexcusably violent protestors.


Look at the man with a white shirt/black top/head injury who kicks a copper to the floor at the start of the video. He is not arrested, later on he even walks right up to the police on his own, yet they do nothing. A normal person would have received a baton to the head, followed by another beating when taken back to the police station.

Contrary to the chattering masses of the MSM, most of the protests so far have been very peaceful. As predicted the police have been aggressive with their usage of anti-terror legislation to clamp down on protesters.
