A group called Anarcha-L.A. recently uploaded a video of the Mission May Day Riots titled “Ⓐ SCENES FROM A BLACK BLOC Ⓐ,” in which you can see hear the group do 99-percenty stuff like run a recycling bin into a cop car (which, admittedly, is kind of hilarious to watch, if only for the stupid/fail factor), blast Jay-Z rapping about material goods, steal chairs from restaurant patios, and smash business windows. About 6 minutes into the video, you can see someone outside of Four Barrel chase off the vandals; he then follows them for a few minutes, getting threatened and cussed at by the rioters. Eventually he tries to reason with them, saying they don't know who owns the vehicles and “if you want to smash a BMW, that's one thing.” Then the clip cuts out.
While we've seen a lot of similar footage in the past, this is the first instance of a group taking responsibility (of sorts) for the riots.
From their YouTube profile:
Anarcha-LA is a group of anarchists, feminists, and non-gender conforming individuals. We work towards building an egalitarian world free of patriarchy, capitalism, and all forms oppression and hierarchy, through creative direct action, study groups, collaborative publications, and community outreach.
