The Black Bloc

Contrary to news reports, “The Black Bloc” is not the name of the anarchist group responsible for the mayhem in Toronto during the G20 protests in June, 2010. This was clearly a false name they gave to the reporters and police to protect the real identity of their group from judicial inquiry. The falseness of the name is evident from the fact that a black bloc is a common protesting technique of which their own action was merely an example.
