Organizer/AuthorSan Francisco Against Hate
**** IMPORTANT ACTION UPDATE, READ CAREFULLY ****

Today, we scared off the white supremacists and fascists from gathering at Crissy Field, only to announce they would relocate to the Alamo Square Park tomorrow at 2PM.

San Franciscans will not tolerate hate in our city, that’s why we are STILL organizing to end white supremacy tomorrow and rallying at 11AM at the corner of Steiner and Hayes.

Our goal is to shut down white supremacy and show the real power of San Francisco. We will also be vigilant of any attacks on the Black institutions of the Western Addition—particularly its churches—and stop them from marching on events in Civic Center, the Castro and the Mission.

Tomorrow, stay careful, stay courageous and organize with us to end white supremacy.

Sign for Bay Resistance on their website AND text RESIST to 41411 for important action alerts.

**** IMPORTANT ACTION UPDATE, READ CAREFULLY ****

Join us as we show the Klan, Nazis, "alt-right" and fascists that white supremacists are not welcome in San Francisco!

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 10 (ILWU), who has a long history of fighting against racism, along with many other SF community groups and individuals who stand against white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia, will be marching. Join us!

UPDATE: We'll be meeting at Alamo Square Park (at Steiner St. at Hayes St.) and marching together at 11:00AM

Our strength lies in numbers. Join us, bring snacks/sheetcakes, bring noisemakers, bring signs!

Please sign up for Bay Resistance's text alert system to stay informed of real time updates - text RESIST to 41411

MUNI will have shutdowns in Marina AFTER 12PM. More info: https://www.sfmta.com/about-sfmta/blog/traffic-and-transit-plan-saturday-demonstrations. Parking will be scarce.

§Bring Water and Snacks, Come in Groups, and Look Out For Each Other
by San Francisco Against Hate Saturday Aug 26th, 2017 12:34 AM
TL;DR: Bring water, snacks and sunscreen, come in groups and look out for each other, check the event often and get on the text alert system and finally, NLG Hotline: 415-285-1011. See you all tomorrow!


We wanted to quickly remind people of the following tips:

-Due to the nature of this event, plans may change very quickly, so we urge people to check this event page often and sign up for the Bay Resistance text system.

- Our biggest security goal is to keep the group large and together. Please come with a group of people you trust and keep an eye on one another. Stay with the group. We are safest when we are together. Note that there is no formal security plan in place (aside from what law enforcement does) so be safe and look out for each other. Come and leave in groups, set up a buddy system, and keep up situational awareness.

- Come in comfortable clothing and bring everything you might need for the day but nothing unnecessary. Water, snacks, sun screen, and an extra layer are musts.

- Write down the number for the National Lawyer's Guild, ideally in sharpie on your body somewhere. Call it if you see someone getting arrested or the police behaving badly. The number is 415-285-1011.

-We do not know at this time if any items will be restricted at Alamo Square Park, we will update the group if we hear of any restrictions.
