in 1968, Mark Rudd led the legendary occupation of five buildings at Columbia University, a dramatic act of protest against the university’s support for the Vietnam War and its institutional racism. Rudd was the charismatic chairman of the Columbia chapter of SDS, Students for a Democratic Society, the largest radical student organization in the U.S. After a violent police bust, the Columbia occupation turned into a student strike that closed down the entire campus, turning Rudd into a national symbol of student revolt.
Rudd went on to become the cofounder of the Weatherman faction of SDS which took control of the student organization and helped organize the notorious Days of Rage in Chicago in 1969.
But Mark Rudd wanted revolution.

An article on the state's entrapment cases against anarchists recently, and how this has happened in the recent past with Muslims and environmental activists.
[i]We live in an exciting time where it can be reasonably believed that the current ruling order can be overthrown and an entirely new world can flourish in it's place. Entire governments have been brought down, insurrections nurtured and pushed to their most subversive ends, and people across the globe anticipate a coming, perhaps winnable, clash between themselves and power.
Last Saturday morning a bomb exploded outside the vocational college for young women “Morvillo-Falcone” in the Southern city of Brindisi, killing a teenage girl, Melissa Bassi, and severely wounding several other classmates.
The school is named after the anti-Mafia prosecutor Giovanni Falcone’s wife, Francesca Morvillo, herself also a judge. Both were killed at the hands of the Mafia in a highway bombing in Sicily in 1992. Nevertheless, there were no immediate claims of responsibility for Saturday’s bombing, nothing that could link it to organised crime.
On May 19 at 8:00 a.m., an explosive device made of two gas tanks blasted through the vocational high school Francesca Morvillo Falcone in Brindisi, at the same time that students were gathering and preparing to start an ordinary day of class. One student, Melissa Bassi (aged 16), was killed, while seven other students are being treated for severe injuries (one of them, whose identity has not been made public, is allegedly in critical condition).
While no one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, several clues would seem to suggest the involvement of organized crime (which in the region is known as the Sacra Corona Unita).
