The I07 conference of the new syndicalist movement in Paris was a resounding success. After the conference the participants joined the annual May Day parade in Paris as part of the anarchist contingent. Estimates of the anarchist bloc vary from 2 to 6 thousand people, all unmarred by juvenile antics trying to resurrect the decaying corpse of the 'Black Bloc'. The success of the conference and the large anarchist presence shows that anarchism has something to offer the world besides play-acting at street fighting.
Molly will report on the conference as news comes in. If you want to see more photos of the anarchist contingent go to http://Indymedia.org.nz/newswire/display/72984/index.php
