Armed antifascist march celebrates after KKK and Nazi no-show at "Rock Stone Mountain"

Feb 2nd was supposed to be the major KKK/Nazi "Rock Stone Mountain" rally at Stone Mountain Park in GA. The mountain has figures of Confederate generals carved into it and is the reputed birthplace of the KKK. Antifascists had been mobilizing for months to counter this rally, while the Klan and Nazis expected total police support. The fash were denied a permit by Stone Mountain Park, and their organizing fell apart into disarray. The event was cancelled. On Feb 2, not a single fascist was seen by antifascist activists guarding the area, so an antifa victory march was held. WE HAVE REPLACED YOU!
