People are needed to demonstrate against an Alt-Right rally on Berkeley campus.
The National Policy Institute is holding a rally on Berkeley campus at Sproul Plaza, 3PM on Friday May 6th. On their Youtube page, the NPI posted a video featuring Richard Spencer, who states the intention of appearing on Sproul to create a "safe space" for the Alt (Alternative) Right. The Alt Right movement is associated with far right politics including white supremacy.
Come to Berkeley to demonstrate against a Alt-Right rally on Sproul Plaza at 3PM, tomorrow Friday the 6th of May. Take a stand against the National Policy Institute, which seek to inflate racial divisions. The NPI is a white supremacist organization that supports Donald Trump's candidacy for presidency. Be aware that on their website (http://www.radixjournal.com/), there was an announcement that they intend to live stream their rally, so people might want to mask-up, if they are uncomfortable being filmed.
Richard Spencer, the organizer of the rally, has been using social media to gather people who believe in his racially charged philosophy. The National Policy Institute promotes ideas such as intellectual differences between races. Spencer is an ardent support of Donal Trump, who he calls "the Napolean of the Current Year" Spencer calls for white people, particularly white men, to "oppose the system" and to defend the white race against an alleged threat from multiculturalism. Spencer also is a strong promoter of Islamophobia.
Take a stand against The National Policy Institute, and against Richard Spencer. Gather in Sproul Plaza at 3PM, and be part of a counter-rally against the Alt-Right and against Trump.
