Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

Don Fitz: What the Police Won't Apologize For

At Counterpunch. Don Fitz reports on anti-GMO activists at the World Agricultural Forum in St. Louis, May 2003. The police riot there was typical of those against anti-globalization demonstrators from Seattle on -- including, among other things, arrest of organizers on such trumped-up charges as "riding a bicycle without a license" (a non-crime in St. Louis), a warrantless invasion based on the false claim (i.e., police lie) that a building was condemned, and a warrantless invasion followed by a humiliating strip search. Local police intelligence activities against the activists was also reminiscent of the good old red squads. St. Louis police cooperated not only with the FBI, but with Monsanto. Shit, I'd have figured Monsanto's own goons were more than capable of running a police state on their own.
