The Sacramento Protest:
Victory over Fascism
On June 26, fascists were chased off of their intended rally site at the California State Capitol building by hundreds of anti-fascist protesters. People from the Sacramento community and anti-racist protesters from around northern California began to assemble in the morning to prevent white supremacists from entering the capitol grounds and holding their hate rally.
Militarized police cornered the protesters on the street to allow space for fascists to assemble, but to their surprise the protesters heroically challenged them and took over the steps of the capitol building before the fascists could assemble.
The some-500 anti-racist protesters who covered the capitol grounds were people of many political orientations, races, genders, and ages united against the hate group and its preaching of deadly racist ideas. The counter demonstration was supported by, among others, Antifa Sacramento, Anti Police Terror Project, Sacramento Brown Berets, the Progressive Labor Party, various anarchist collectives, and the Party for Socialism and Liberation.
Anti-fascist participants in the Sacramento Action will tell about their experiences and lead a discussion on this event.
