A black bloc is a tactic...?[edit]

No, it's much more than that.--Jack Upland (talk) 07:00, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

What would you want us to call it? Certainly can't call it an "event" and we can't call it an organisation. Perhaps, with your wide range of nomenclature, you could assist. --wh1ter0se (talk) 14:49, 21 January 2017 (GMT)

I would say "black bloc is a name given to groups who..." To some extent it might be a media creation, but it is associated with anarchists.--Jack Upland (talk) 11:39, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
Group, movement or phenomenon? --JamesPoulson (talk) 01:04, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
The LA Times has twice called black bloc "Self described anarchists" but when clicking on the link in one of their articles, it simply links to another article where they make the exact same assertion, themselves.
I began searching for a reference as such, and have come up empty. When I come here I see that they are "often associated with anarchism." but this again lacks proper citation.
Is this a reference to the fact that the claim is often being made frequently by outside sources? This seems like more of a demonstration tactic, or violent take on flash mobs than an organized movement espousing the virtues of anarchy.Jeffman12 (talk) 01:11, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
The article is full of references to anarchists and autonomists. Why don't you read it?--Jack Upland (talk) 05:37, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Wrong content[edit]

"Since the "Battle of Rostock", traditional "May Day Riots" after demonstrations every 1 May 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."

This content is just not in the source, which is mentioned in the article: http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/print/d-78832416.html

And about the injuries during the G8 in Rostock, you can find other numbers here: http://www.focus.de/politik/deutschland/g8-gipfel/rostock-krawalle_aid_62405.html

What does the source say? What do you suggest we write instead? El_C 09:19, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
"According to the German Verfassungsschutz, the weeks of organization before the demonstration and the riots themselves were amounted to a revival for the militant left in Germany. From 2005 to 2010 the left wing people who use violence grew on 20 percent. All in all the office counted 6800 people."

That's all, the rest is simply not true and actually since the 80s there were massive riots during the first may in Berlin. E.g. see the article here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day_in_Kreuzberg Btw., the police itself actually revised later the number of injured police men.
