Sometimes it's good to see some of the criticisms from the left. The
World Socialist Web Site is an excellent news source, and it's read by

confrontation with the police and regarding the outlook of many
participants in the group (nice interviews), but also somewhat
critical of the organizers. Their main criticism starts out like
