RNC Welcoming Committee - Organized Chaos?

A group of anarchists calling themselves the RNC Welcoming Committee, is planning to disrupt the upcoming Republican National Convention. This is a real head-scratcher. Isn't the formation of an organization, complete with leadership and spokespeople, anti-anarchist?

A successful demonstration of this magnitude requires discipline, organization, communication, coordination, none of which are anarchist strong points. Three of the groups spokespeople went on a local radio station in Minnesota and decried Republicans as money grubbing, war-mongering, racists who hate clean air and clean water and are "not nice people". Their call is sure to inspire lots of meth-heads in the area to come out and get themselves arrested while most citizens and business owners of all political stripes take advantage of the increased traffic of money-spending individuals who may or may not share their personal philosophies.

It should make for some good YouTube footage anyway.
