Donate to the Woman Brutally Assaulted by Nathan Damigo of Identity Europa in Berkeley
We believe it is essential to provide support for those who risked their lives to confront white nationalists on the street, and that it is extra important for those who were victimized with targeted violence.
The events at Berkeley on April 15th show that the resistance to the Alt Right is mounting, but also that they want to victimize protesters with brutal violence. The video that has gone viral is of Identity Europa founder Nathan Damigo brutally attacking a woman in the crowd, an act that is less than shocking given Damigo's own history of hate crimes and the patriarchal violence his white nationalist community relies on. That woman is now facing harassment and doxxing by white nationalists online, as well as had to be hospitalized for a concussion.
According to the GoFundMe created to support her:
We believe it is essential to provide support for those who risked their lives to confront white nationalists on the street, and that it is extra important for those who were victimized with targeted violence. It seems like Damigo thought that attacking a 100lb woman was an easy way to prove his manhood, but we are a community that bands together to support those who are survivors of this type of violence.
This disgusting video was uploaded to YouTube with the title "Cute ANTIFA Girl Gets Punched in The Face - 4/15 Berkeley Pro Free Speech Rally"
Donate: ANTIFA Girl Hospitalized By Nazis!
Update: Presently waiting for word back from support at https://www.tiaacharitable.org/how-a-donor-advised-fund-works/ to see if funds (five comrades *one of whom being Louise* serving as the donor/advisory board of the fund) will be receivable toward the establishment of a 501(c)(3) organization for purposes somewhere in the range between a Democracy @ Work Action Group and an Antifa organization. We're taking the fight to its economic roots!
