      THE METHODS BEHIND ANARCHISTS' MADNESS

      by DOUGLAS MONTERO

      February 4, 2002 -- They claim to be pacifists, but several
      leaders of the anti-World Economic Forum rallies helped
      coordinate civil disobedience that led to violence, a Post
      investigation found.

      In nightly meetings, leaders from anarchist groups
      throughout the United States and Europe conspired to charge
      police lines and disrupt public service.

      They provide free tactical training to their soldiers with
      realistic and well-acted playing scenarios - to teach them
      how to respond.

      Free housing for incoming soldiers was available along with
      legal classes that taught local laws and rights.

      The Post investigation involved attending nightly
      "Spokescouncil" meetings at Good Shepherd Faith Church on
      West 66th Street in Manhattan, where leaders gathered to
      strategize. The Post also participated in workshops held in
      an East Village church and at Columbia University.

      Visiting anarchists start at a welcome center at the Sixth
      Street Community Center, which was set up by "Another World
      is Possible," an umbrella group. They are debriefed on
      events and activities and given maps.

      The rookies are steered to workshops.

      One workshop encouraged all anarchists to form "affinity
      groups," a cluster of five to 25 people that march together,
      look after each other and through consensus, break the law
      "if you choose to do so," a lawyer said.

      "Never march alone."
