I haven't seen the whole context, but it seems that they might be doing the raids in relation to some known vandalidm. What context info do you have?

I would like something at least somewhat more credible than a blog post.

Kelvin is really bringing out the news today!

After telling us that people confuse capitalism with corporatism, he tells us that the government spies on us.

Who would have thought!

Ah yes, the old Wheylous chain-yank. I was the victim of that once before.

The only one worth following is the one who leads... not the one who pulls; for it is not the direction that condemns the puller, it is the rope that he holds.

This is due to the may day protests where a bunch of people dressed in black vandalised a nike store and other stores. Then the media labels them anarchists. Several months later these people get raided who claim to be anarchists and claim to have nothing to do with it.

I always found it strange, it happens in the uk as well, when so called anarchists attack symbolisms of capitalism and not symbolisms of the state. You would think that if they were anarchists they would attack a government building. I am not advocating violence I am just saying I don't see how they can be considered anarchists. They realy should be called anti-capitalists vandals or something like that.

Well its always good to remind ourselves what is happening around us.

I think you should read the Russia Today article posted above.  The grand jury decided on this is March, before May Day occurred.

All the news sources I can find on this (and of course, no American national news is covering it) say she was questioned about 2012 May Day vandalism, not 2011.
