  Demonstrators against a G8 in Rostock, Germany
The demonstrations attract more and more aggressive groups, either from sensitive neighborhoods, or from violent members of a strong community relationship, or from anarchist and "Antifa" movements
from the Ultra Left, as well as from the Ultra Right.

  London riots - 2011
We could see through the first group from sensitive neighborhoods, urban violence as in England, after demonstrations, riots in several cities, with principles of violence close to guerrilla warfare: burning shops, buses, cars, attacks against the forces of order.

In the second case of violence, due to violent members who are part of a strong community relationship of the "Travelling People", "belonging to a country", "people of color" or "religious" type, we can find ourselves in movements of violence and urban guerrilla, following for example a deceased person.
As here with the link below in France, in 2016, during an intervention of the forces of order, which had entailed several days out of control and requiring a firm recovery of the ground.

  "Justice for Theo" rally on 18/02/2017
We can also see, in demonstrations in support of people who have died or been arrested, strong community demands and show real tension with slogans: "no justice, no peace", indicating a pressure that will always be present.

  Riots in France in 2005

  Individuals dressed in the same way and hiding their faces during a demonstration in Germany
In the last group, coming from the anarchist movements of the Ultra Left, as well as from the movements of the Ultra Right, some coordinate themselves by gathering in Black Blocs: Principle of moving in group, dressed in dark clothes, masked and harassing the forces of order in SWARMING technique (Swarms)

The rest of this article will present the action of the ultra left in the demonstrations throughout France and other countries.

Pierre Joseph PROUDHON
To understand the logic of the Ultra Left movements, we must go back to the very beginning of the anarchist movement which dates from the beginning of the industrial era around 1840, and will find its bases with Pierre Joseph PROUDHON, French polemicist, journalist, economist and philosopher. He declared in a book he wrote "What is property? His answer is: "What is property? His answer is: "What is property? It is theft" and immediately causes a scandal. It is in his profession of faith that the birth certificate of the anarchist thought was born:
"Well! Are you a democrat?
- No, I am not.
- What! You would be monarchic?
- God forbid.
 - So you are an aristocrat?
- Not at all.
- You want a mixed government?
- Even less.
- What are you then?
- I am an anarchist."

  Book by Pierre Joseph PROUDHON

He points out the property as being the foundation of a certain social order and to say to be anarchist is to say: I attack the foundation of the social order identified as being the property. For him there are close links between the political domination exercised by the state, the economic domination exercised by capital and the religious domination exercised by the idea of God. He thinks that it is necessary to destroy them at the same time to change the social structure.

Drawing representing the crowd dispersed by the forces of order on 01/05/1886 in Chicago
May 1st became a founding date in the labor movement. Indeed, it is on May 1st 1886, during a general strike, launched in Chicago in the USA, that a workers' protest was born: More than 300.000 workers met to claim the 8 hours day. The police violently repulsed the demonstrators and killed one of the strikers. The walls were covered with posters calling for revenge.

Drawing of the bomb that exploded among the police force on May 4, 1886 in Chicago

On May 4, 1886, a protest march took place on the Haymarket square in Chicago, and in the evening, while it was dispersed, a bomb was thrown in the direction of the police, killing 15 Chicago policemen. 8 anarchist syndicalists were judged on November 11, 1886 despite a lack of evidence. 3 were sentenced to life imprisonment, and the other 5 were hanged. They will all be rehabilitated several years later: the governor of Illinois confirms that it was the chief of police of Chicago who had organized everything...

On this video of November 1, 2014, during a demonstration against police violence, we can hear slogans: "Remi in Tribute, Resistance and sabotage" or "cops, fascists, you are the terrorists" or "a cop, a bullet, social justice".
One can also see the continuation with the outbursts which will follow.

The logistics and means to get to the zone, to evacuate, and to progress show real difficulties in restoring order.

The mediatization of actions through social networks and the media is also part of the means to influence the facts.

Demonstration against the holding of the World Cup in Brazil - Sao Paulo - 24/01/2014
as well as by recurring messages as for example, the tag A.C.A.B put on the walls (All Cops Are Bastards), or slogans of the type: "Neither God, nor master" "Everybody hates the Police..." as well as "No Border, No Country" or "We are ungovernable".

Here, an excerpt, again from this French parliamentary report of 2015, an analysis that must make everyone take responsibility for this kind of situations, which if not addressed, will always be constantly increasing and will cause major human and societal dramas in the balance of all democratic countries:

"In a more global way, we must reflect on a European model, bearing in mind the events that took place at the summits of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Strasbourg, Seattle, Genoa or Copenhagen. We must be concerned about defending the rights of everyone, citizens, police officers and gendarmes (...) Policing is a matter of society and not only of security or freedom. All of us - the Parliament, the Government, the observers, the academics - must think in this perspective. What face does our country want to present? The answer requires all political leaders, especially parliamentarians, to make decisions in good conscience."

Demonstrators ready to fight with the French Police Forces
For the members of the Ultraleft, it is the occupation without right, nor title of territory, with the installation of a relation of force with the political, and this often in front of the cameras of television to take the opinion to witness. This system is dangerous because it is based on insubordination, violent insubordination, all based on the relationship of force and violence.

Black Blocs on the Austerlitz bridge in Paris on 01/05/2018
We could see on May 01, 2018, in Paris, that individuals were coordinating to also meet to confront the Police. More than 1,200 individuals had coordinated to form a compact Black Bloc by putting themselves from the beginning at the head of the procession of the demonstrators of the 1st of May who came peacefully to say their oppositions to government measures.

Another excerpt from the 2015 French parliamentary report on "Establishing an inventory and making proposals on the missions and modalities of maintaining republican order." :
"A third and final development concerning the protesting actors was unanimously noted by the people heard by the commission. This concerns the increasingly frequent and numerous presence of violent individuals motivated, more or less, by the sole desire to disrupt public order, to commit acts of violence (including against the demonstrators themselves) or to confront the security forces."

Notre Dame des Landes  - France - 2014
  "These individuals differ from the historical model of the "looter" by two characteristics: on the one hand, they are structured in organized collectives deliberately seeking to commit offences"

Demonstration in the streets of Nantes February 22, 2014
"and relying on greater availability of information on social movements, they have become practically professionalized and willingly travel - including outside the borders of their country - in order to be present at the events of their choice, whatever the motives and watchwords."
