#NoNewKKK Don't Let Richard Spencer Spread Hate

Video from the counterprotest to Richard Spencer's rally at the White House. Afterwards police escorted the white supremacists to the Metro, where Metro police closed the station for the white supremacists' protection.


From Resist This:

The Nazis will be at the White House on Sunday, 2 PM. Of course, people of conscience will be there to oppose them. DC activists are calling on anyone who stands against white supremacy, anti-Semitism, anti-feminism, anti-immigrant bluster, Islamophobia, and more to join us and prevent the Nazis from holding their rally. Please join us. The movement needs you!

Richard Spencer and Mike Enoch both sent out tweets on Saturday afternoon, stating that they will be at the White House, Lafayette Park, at 2 PM, for an anti-immigrant rally. Their “organizing” seems to consist of just sending out tweets, so we expect their numbers to be small.

With less than 24 hours notice, the people of the Washington DC area are responding. We will be present in the park to create a wall of noise and drown out Nazi voices. We will stop them from organizing toward their hateful agenda.

The supposed reason that the Nazis want to meet tomorrow is to protest against the recent not-guilty verdict in the highly politicized San Francisco trial of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an undocumented immigrant. Garcia Zarate was accused of the murder of Kate Steinle, who was white, but the prosecution did not present enough evidence, and the jury did not find Garcia Zarate guilty.

Right-wing pundits, white supremacists, and Nazis have been using this trial as a lightning rod for anti-immigrant sentiment.

Let’s show them that the Washington DC community stands behind immigrants and will protect our communities. And we stand against Nazis!
