Washington - Today 18 anarchists and anti-authoritarians were arrested in Riverfront Park after marching peacefully against police brutality through downtown Spokane, Wa.
About 70 of us gathered by the river and had a jolly march to the park at around 5pm with signs and banners reading, "Those who hold power must be targeted", "Stop the violence!", "Disarm Authority" and many more.

Anarchists may be utter morons, but they don't necessarily promote war and violence. They promote the abolishment of government, all government. They believe that without a larger overseeing government, self-governing bodies would form naturally among the populace. Problem is... there's noone to decide which side of the street should be driven on, or what currency to use, etc. Eventually networks of agreements form and a council is put together to manage the networks, and viola... you've got a government again. Either that, or some individual with a lot of power and respect starts enslaving everyone else, resulting in a monarchy or dictatorship.
You don't see many anarchist societies around for a reason...
