Say No to Hate in the Bay: Oakland Solidarity with Charlottesville (video)
by Dave Id
Monday Aug 14th, 2017 7:14 PM
After a fascist mob attacked a small groups of UVA student counter-protesters the night before, the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly on August 12 when nazi enthusiast James Alex Fields of Ohio deliberately sped his car into a crowd of antifa, killing thirty-two year old anti-racism activist and Charlottesville native Heather Heyer. Nineteen others were injured in the attack, some critically. Separately, other anti-fascists were physically assaulted in the vicinity. Within hours, solidarity demonstrations and vigils sprang up across the country. In Oakland, hundreds of protesters shut down I-580 that night. The following afternoon, a rally was held in Latham Square. These are some video clips from that rally.
Cat Brooks of the Anti Police-Terror Project leads a chant of "No hate in the Bay." She speaks about how local politicians, Oakland police, and the "orange dude" in Washington support nazi terrorists. She closes in this clip with a story about a recent staredown with skinheads in Oakland: "Motherfuckers, you don't scare me." (video 1:36)

Full audio of all speakers from the "Say No to Hate in the Bay" rally will be forthcoming.
