A rally against hate on August 19 was sponsored by Mountain View Voices for Peace and Justice, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center and several other organizations.

A right-wing demonstration scheduled at Google HQ in Mountain View, CA didn't happen this weekend. It was postponed with a few days notice with organizers saying they feared "Alt-Left terrorist threats”. Counter-protesters to the right wing demo gathered as planned and the protest in Mountain View's Civic Center Plaza was entirely peaceful.

Clever caricatures of Trump inspired laughter; there was an open mic with speakers and music.

Corporate media reported about 500 people attended, though there were likely many more.
