: A vanguard is a group that rejects the idea of participation by the "common people"...
That's a distortion. Revolutionary parties would get NOWHERE without 'common people' (your scare quotes, not mine). Revolutionary parties, to specify, LEAD masses.
: At no point was any line drawn between the organizers and the public; the original idea came from a small group of people; but all contributions were welcome. And in under a year, we managed to mobilize groups in 43 countries to mount a co-ordinated protest. It worked so successfully that the groups involved decided to do it again to coincide with the WTO meeting on November the 30th. And that's whats currently hitting the headlines.
Can I now count on your spontaneous movement actually ENDING the power relations that the WTO represents?
Or will it be yet another 'No Nukes' movement that did NOTHING IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS to end nukes?
