We know AdBusters started OWS. That is a socialist organization from Canada whose main tactic is called jamming. However, it seems the protests are turning more and more towards anarchy as civil disobedience is becoming the word of the day. At the moment, they are calling for non-violence, but at the same time they have started creating roadblocks and the tension seems to be mounting.
Is it a far fetched idea to believe a portion of OWS protesters, the ones who are attracted by true anarchy, could go down the road of the FLQ? After all, the FLQ did blow up the Montreal Stock Exchange, and performed many acts of violence towards what it perceived to be the 1% at the time. I would be very surprised if the anarchists within OWS were not aware of the FLQ and I assume it is one of their models.
