Large protests against far-right in S.F.
Authorities in Berkeley, San Francisco, and Alameda County prepared for an influx of fringe-right supporters over the weekend, hoping to squelch the assemblies from turning violent -- like they have in the past -- through a series of legal maneuvers and bureaucratic red tape. And it seems to be working: Patriot Prayer has twice canceled its event in San Francisco and the organizer of a fringe-right rally in Berkeley is urging people not to come. More

When you fight violence with violence, no matter who comes out ahead, violence has won.

NOTES from counter-protester Aaron Connelly: Nazi groups: Proud Boys, Rise Against, Rise Above, DIY Nazi gang in LA/OC, Identity Europa, Hollywood McGinis, racist white-Latino Colombian Johnny Benitez, Augustus Invictus is an outed racist Nazi...
OTHER NOTES: "Khakistan" is a racist wonderland, BAMN = By Any Means Necessary, counter-protesters outnumber right wingers more than 100:1 at Berkeley rally, "Avenge Charlottesville, Defend Your Community" - reads large black and red sign carried in by Antifa, which police tugged at and tried to steal.
