it's a mixed bag. there are a lot of very interesting and very thoughtful people that get lumped in with the more extreme anarchists, and there are lots of shades of grey in between.
there are academics and writers, photographers, bloggers, professional protesters (yes, it's ironic, i get that), disaffected youth, concerned trade unionists, and straight up anarchists. there are all shades of the left wing, and several shades of the right. people are protesting all kinds of different things, and saying it in all kinds of different ways. a lot of it is valuable, but all of that gets lost because the media just lumps everyone together as a group of violent nonsense-filled anarchists.
