FBI confidential informant also said to be provocateur

According to activists from Des Moines, Philadelphia, Miami, Sacramento, and other locations, a young woman named “Anna” allegedly infiltrated peace and justice rallies and anarchist meetings, and even attempted to join protests against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the DNC’s national convention last year as a paid FBI confidential “informant.” Activists say that she has tried to provoke conflict at various advocacy events and violent incidents with police to get people arrested. In other words, Anna is not just an informant, she may be a provocateur.

About @ndy

    Ho-hum Andy — are you a real slackbastard or does the [Socceroos] first appearance since 1974 in the World Cup really, really matter little? lol 😉

    I hazard a guess — you love Aussie Rules to the exclusion of anything else. You probably won\’t even rub my nose in it that the Wallabies thumped England B in the test Rugby Saturday gone!

    Oh well, Slackbastard is football free?

    One sad fact from this World Cup is that blacks and other non-white skinned people have been told to be wary in the former East Germany. There is alot of race hate there. Do you have any sensible explanation why the eastern Europeans seem to have embraced Nazism? I haven\’t a clue.

    G’day Gray,

    I’m a slackbastard who is shortly going to be watching the SOCCEROOS defeat Japan.

    I love Aussie Rules and I’m a one-eyed Magpies supporter. (Today they lost to The Melbourne Establishment.)

    As for rugby… I can’t say I pay much attention to union, or league for that matter. FYI, in Australia, the most populous state — New South Wales, pop. app. 7 million — and the third most populous state — Queensland, pop. app. 4 million — are the rugby states. Every other state is Australian Rules (more or less). So, the country is divided roughly in half inre adherence to rugby (league and union) and Australian Rules sporting codes.

    As for Australia thumping England… it’s such a regular occurence, is there any real need for further commentary? I do look forward to laughing at the new English spinner’s incompetence in the field when they tour here next Summer though!

    As for your last point… I think it’s important to place the seeming popularity of fascist or neo-Nazi doctrines in Eastern Europe in context: history — the collapse of Communism; economics — gross inequality and; politics — highly authoritarian political systems.

    But more on that later.

    PS. Re Germany: http://slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=242 — WSJ article. Flawed (too obvious ‘liberal’ bias) but still interesting. I usually rely on German antifa for the ‘real’ news…
