"In 1986 Hamburg squatters mobilised following attacks on the Hafenstraße. A demonstration of 10,000 took to the streets surrounding at least 1,500 people in a black bloc. They carried a large banner saying "Build Revolutionary Dual Power!" At the end of the march, the black bloc then engaged in street fighting that forced the police to retreat. The next day 13 department stores in Hamburg were set alight, causing nearly $10 million in damage. Later that year, following the Chernobyl disaster, militant anti-nuclear activists used the tactic.
On 1 May 1987, a peaceful peoples fest in Berlin-Kreuzberg was attacked by West German police. In consequence of the unprovoked attack, thousands of people attacked the police with rocks, bottles and Molotov cocktails. The riots became famous after the police had to completely pull out of the so called "SO 36" Neighborhood in Kreuzberg for several hours, and rioters looted shops together with residents.
When Ronald Reagan came to Berlin in June 1987, he was met by around 50,000 demonstrators protesting against his Cold War policies. This included a black bloc of 3,000 people. A couple of months later, police intensified their harassment of the Hafenstraße squatters. In November 1987, the residents were joined by thousands of other autonomen and fortified their squat, built barricades in the streets and defended themselves against the police for nearly 24 hours. After this the city authorities legalised the squatters residence.
On 1 May 1988 [Communist May Day], radical left groups organised a May Day demonstration through Berlin-Kreuzberg, ending in riots even heavier than the year before. The police were attacked with steel balls fired by slingshots, stones, fireworks and Molotov cocktails. On 2 May, headline of the Berlin newspaper B.Z. was "Beirut?? Nein, das ist Berlin!" (Beirut?? No, it´s Berlin!). The riots finally became a tradition in Berlin-Kreuzberg and have recurred every 1 May since, but never as fatally as in the first two years. When the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund met in Berlin in 1988, the autonomen hosted an international gathering of anti-capitalist activists. Numbering around 80,000, the protesters greatly outnumbered the police. Officials tried to maintain control by banning all demonstrations and attacking public assemblies. Nevertheless, there were riots and upmarket shopping areas were destroyed.
In the period after the Berlin Wall, the German black bloc movement continued traditional riots such as May Day in Berlin-Kreuzberg, but with decreasing intensity. Their main focus became the struggle against the recurring popularity of Neo-Nazism in Germany. The "turn" came in June 2007, during the 33rd G8 summit. A black block of 2,000 people built barricades, set cars alight and attacked the police during a mass demonstration in Rostock. 400 police officers were injured, and also about 500 demonstrators and activists. According to the German Verfassungsschutz, the weeks of organisation before the demonstration and the riots themselves were amounted to a revival for the militant left in Germany. Since the "Battle of Rostock", traditional "May Day Riots" after demonstrations every May 1 in Berlin, and since 2008 also in Hamburg, became more intense, and violence of the autonomen against police officers and political enemies at demonstrations of radical left groups have dramatically increased.

Occupy Oakland Embraces Nonviolence, but Debates [considers] 'Black Bloc' Tactics
If this guy is a certified head case, how then did he get the gun? Thought mental cases were prohibited from possesing firearms. So much for gun control.
Why do people like this prick have3 to go out and kill a lot of people that hasn’t done anything to him? since a person like this shooter seems pre-disposed to doing these kinds of atrocities, why not just point the gun to their own head and pull the trigger? It would solve their own problem and not ruin the lives of others. Prayers going out to those affected by this guy’s lunacy.
However, the media will snooze once more if he is: Illegally in the U.S.; Middle Eastern or ME descent; Muslim; any other minority; an Obama Supporter; a Democrat; an Occupy Movement Member.
You nailed it.
Did you hear the chant of Four More Years? Wow ... these people are sick ... sick ... sick.
Aha! He bought the guns from a Mexican who got them through Fast and Furious! Holder told the Mexican to sell them to Holmes, who they knew was crazy. They needed something to set him off, so the had a movie made that had a character named Bane and bad-mouthed OWS. This made Rush think about the link and he mention it on his show. This made Holmes go berserk. Now obama will get on TV and say it was Rush's fault and I hear he has signed an executive order banning ALL guns immediately. The National Guard is coming to your house shortly to collect all your weapons. Limbaugh will be arrested during the first half-hour of his show while he is on the air!
There, another wild-ass speculation to add to the huge pile aleady produced today. Didn't have any time to gather unrelated photos of random individuals since I wanted to be first to get this info out. Glad to be of help.
San Diego mother
I know, disgusting..these people have no class.
& the very few O campaign rally’s that I’ve watched (before I can switch channel) are all loud, rowdy..people yelling above eachother..it’s weird!
I guarantee O is going to pull a heal the planet Tucson moment...all about him
It's pitiful when such parody is so close to reality....
What? Wait for actual facts before we spin our fanciful theories? What a quaint idea. ;-)
Id say that some people are just plain evil....controlled by Satan.....plenty of people are nuts...I am for sure....except we dont go around killing people....As a nation, we kill 2-3-4,000 infants every day. That is evil for sure! My tagline says it all.
As speculation mounts about the motive behind the mass shooting, one private investigator has said that Holmes may have been part of Occupy Wall Street's most violent faction Occupy Black Bloc.
I don't think he is. He seems to be just trying to show how similiar the shooter was in appearance to them, and also mode of operation. Important to note is that the movie (Batman) portrays the "Occupy" movement in a bad light. The "Black Bloc" is a violent anarchist part of the OWS movement.
Report via CBS radio of Dark Knight being canceled in Paris, France. Intelligence channels must be red hot?
It's an obvious PR move by the studio. They'd get savaged by the media if they went ahead with the premiere.
So you're admitting that this "private investigator" (whose website screams "ranting loon" btw) has NO ACTUAL EVIDENCE linking James Holmes to OWS in any way, shape, or form?
No kidding. The best thing in the world for republicans would be for Obama to use this as a big push for new anti-gun laws.
yep, 2000 a day and great tag line.
