I’m really really uncomfortable about this, I have participated in anti - fascist demo’s where through a significant police presence the two groups have been kept apart with no violence and minimal/no arrests.
The occupy movement should be condemning mass arrests of this sort, surely the cops could find some violent rhetoric towards bankers and use the same tactic to arrest Occupiers.

Are you a concern troll or simply delusional?

Are those mutually exclusive?

Gosh, someone on the Internet doesn’t share your opinion and posts a brief, cogent alternate opinion? Get out the torches, boy, we got us a troll!
I mean, really, Antonius and Sirk, look at yourselves. Is the opposition to mass arrests as a principle -really- such a controversial, hate-provoking stance that it’s reasonable to dismiss anyone with that notion as a troublemaker?

Maybe it’s just me, but personally, I don’t like violent fascists to threaten my physical well being. And I would appreciate if the police didn’t wait after these fascists broke my face before arresting them.
