A gesture is revolutionary not by its own content but by the sequence of effects it engenders. The situation is what determines the meaning of the act, not the intention of its authors. Sun Tzu said that “victory must be demanded of the situation.” Every situation is composite, traversed by lines of force, tensions, explicit or latent conflicts. Engaging with the war that is present, acting strategically, requires that we start from an openness to the situation, that we undersand its inner dynamic, the relations of force that configure it, the polarities that give it its dynamism.

The mainstream media attempted to portray the May 1st blockade of the Oakland tech commute a failure. An article on SFGate.com carried the headline “May Day rally fails to block tech bus in Oakland.” Further below in the same article, the author goes on to write, “When the lone bus pulled up at 7:40 a.m., it stopped across the street from protesters and left before they could assemble. Other buses were either rerouted or cancelled in anticipation of the protest.” It is unclear why SFGate and its parent the SF Chronicle would have the same interests as Google and Facebook in this matter. The normal tech commute at MacArthur BART, consisting of over twenty individual buses from Facebook and Google, was reduced to just two buses on the morning of May 1st. Despite the trickery of the mainstream media, the tech commute did not take place.

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. —A group of 20 people dressed in black clothing, similar to Black Bloc activists, carried banners promoting violence against police officers, Santa Cruz police said Thursday.
The demonstrators appeared in downtown Santa Cruz a few minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve. One black banner had pink spray paint reading, "MORE DEAD COPS."

From the initial revolt in Ferguson last August to the demonstrations in Oakland and Berkeley last week, property destruction has been central to a new wave of struggle against police violence. But what does vandalizing businesses have to do with protesting police brutality? Why break windows?
