On 1 Dec 2016, Norwegian record producer and DJ Alan Walker launched “You Are Not Alone” as what seems to be a Black Bloc Anthem. In two months, the video has had 164 million views which is expected to climb. Walker’s music video “Faded” has had 932 million views, making his cumulative reach for two videos at over 1 billion views. Walkers recent videos show what appear to be people dressed as black bloc activists.
According to Wikipedia:
Most of the video was filmed in Norway, focusing on Walker’s home town Bergen, and included panoramic shots of nearby tourist attractions such as Ulriken and Trolltunga in Odda. Some parts were also filmed at prominent locations in Europe, including London, Paris and Berlin. Some of the footage in the video are submitted by Walker’s fans around the world. (source)
The term Black Bloc originally referred to a form of protest action where participants would dress in black, and cover their faces. The “black bloc movement” is growing to become a global force of anonymous loosely interconnected occupy-like protest sub-groups that can be immediately called upon to unify and organize world-wide protests, marches, events, and direct actions. The global organization includes event organizers, leaders, media content producers, gamers, hacktivists, and people with other skill sets.
