Black Block

Last night the folks from Cinema Politica asked me to give a short intro on the “Black Bloc” tactic as a prelude to the screening of the film “Black Block” While the film is not about the tactic, it tells the story of the aftermath of the G8 summit protests in 2001 in Genoa. The italian pigs basically attacked a school where activists were sleeping and proceeded to torture them for five fuckin days. The film is 77 minutes long.

From the Cinema Politica page:

Repression is part and parcel of democracy – a power system that, while it needs legitimacy and consensus, also requires control, and constant redefining of the limits within which to be “free citizens.” It is often necessary to counter the enemy to the point of making it inoffensive. Genoa’s G8 Summit in 2001 demonstrated this in the fiercest of ways.
