Will there be strong non-violent resistance to the Alt Reich?
This topic was chosen for Green Sunday because alt-right rallies, featuring known violent instigators, are scheduled at UC Berkeley on Aug 19 and Sept 14 and downtown Berkeley on Aug 27. Mayor Jesse Arreguin asks us to avoid the Civic Center area that Sunday, but "If you do choose to attend and violence breaks out, we ask that you... Stand back, separate yourself from the violence, and don't get baited by provocateurs... Inciting violence and making threats against certain groups is NOT a constitutionally protected right and will be dealt with immediately."
While most of the right wing protesters just want to peacefully demonstrate their right to publicly express support for Trump, white supremacists, some with arms, have been attending these "Free Speech" rallies in multiple cities. Over 1000 non-violent protesters stood up to a KKK rally in Charlottesville Va. They expect 4000 lefties for a peaceful show of force when neo Nazis return.
