Is the only version of a series of events in San Francisco in 2005 that gets linked to on the UK ultra-left/anarchist website libcom.org
That doc, and this doc:
Present two very different and extremely contradictory interpretations of the same series of events.
I explain my version of why this is here:
Obviously based on the sort of antics that take place on libcom 'forums' there's no love lost between me on the one hand, and the sort of people who spend a significant portion of their lives posting lots and lots of stuff on libcom. And I don't expect people who were geographically distant from the actions being written about here to automatically accept my version of what happened.
But basic honesty and integrity on the part of the people who do libcom.org would mean:
1. either having links to both of the docs -- and then trusting that their readers can judge for themselves,
2. or having links to neither of them.
It's obvious that if the mighty revolutionists of libcom.org don't want to get a reputation for being easily played by any leftist hustler who will tickle them under their chins and tell them whatever they want to hear, then libcom.org should either post links to both versions of this story, or not have links to either one.
