Violent “Antifa” groups have been plotting across social media to bring violent disruption to the March 4 Trump rallies, scheduled for March 4th.
This announcement comes after 200 violent rioters were arrested in Washington DC after President Trump’s inauguration. They caused widespread damage, set cars on fire, and looted businesses.
Some of the group’s leaders are organizing in Berkley, where violent protests have also recently broken out. One of them tweeted: “Repost everywhere, Let Berkeley know, they are not alone.”
Here is a repost from their website, Itsgoingdown.org:
On March 4th in the capital of the US, there will be a gathering and march for Trump supporters. Just as Trump’s fascist agenda has emboldened white supremacists and misogynists everywhere, this march is sure to attract the worst of the country’s authoritarian shitheads.
We are calling on antifascists, anarchists, and anti-authoritarians everywhere to resist what is sure to be an open display of racism and misogyny. While some argue that confronting fascists in the streets will only draw attention to them, we know better than to remain complicit. Fascists don’t deserve a single outlet or forum to promote their disgusting ideology. Events like these empower and embolden these scum to further organize.
In Berkeley, the events are specifically being organized by members of the Alt-Right, connected to groups like the ‘Proud Boys.’
These events are being organized in an attempt to make it appear that Trump has widespread public support despite massive anger building against him, and seeks to use his supporters as an auxiliary army against rising social forces that are physically confronting Trump and his policies. Trump and his administration represents a disgusting pro-corporate and pro-billionaire agenda that seeks to push neoliberalism to its authoritarian conclusion while destroying the environment, privatizing everything, attacking immigrants, Muslims, the trans and queer community, and the poor and working-class as a whole.
Let’s not let these marches go unopposed.
