Nothing in that Wikipedia excerpt substantiates your synopsis, which, in
turn, bears little resemblance to my recollection of events. There were no
specifically "anarchist dust-ups"; every group which marched or demonstrated
in the vicinity of the fence knew that the goal was to bring it down,
whether they brought their own ropes and grappling hooks or not. (The
anarchists were far from the only groups which did.) In fact, very few
aspects of the summit action could be politically pigeonholed, aside from
some graffiti (which was as likely to be communistic as anarchistic).
