The FBI along with the Department of Homeland Security are warning law enforcement agencies across the U.S. to be prepared for plots by “extremists” to disrupt the upcoming political conventions, including using what officials described as acid-filled eggs, Fox News reports.

A joint FBI-DHS bulletin issued Wednesday also warned that protesters may try to cause chaos by blocking roadways, shutting down transit systems and using improvised explosive devices like Molotov cocktails. It almost sounds like they are describing your average Occupy rally, doesn’t it?

The bulletin specifically mentions a group of “anarchists” from New York City who may be planning to invade some of the events and block surrounding bridges.

Anarchists “see both parties as the problem,” so both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions are prime targets for them, a federal law enforcement official told Fox News.

The RNC will begin on Monday in Tampa, Fla., pending a potential hurricane, and the DNC is set to open a week later in Charlotte, N.C.

“FBI and DHS assess with high confidence anarchist extremists will target similar infrastructure in Tampa and Charlotte, with potentially significant impacts on public safety and transportation,” according to the law enforcement bulletin. “Extremists will likely use secure communication methods and social networking sites, Internet chat rooms, message boards, and mobile devices such as smart phones to coordinate and facilitate violence or criminal activity.”
