Black Block clashes fascist groups and Trump supporters in Berkeley, California
BLACK BLOCK V.S. FASCISTS AND TRUMP SUPPORTERS IN BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA!
On Saturday, April 15th, a black bloc made up of young antifascists, anarchists, and communists fought against members of neo-nazi organizations and Donald Trump president’s supporters in Berkeley, California.
The police served as accomplices to the right wing groups allowing them access to the main area of the rally. Along with the usual “Make America Great Again” t-shirts and hats, the right wing groups carried anti-semitic signs, flags with nazi swastikas, and at times were even seen carrying out the nazi salute.
While the clashes took place, the black bloc bravely carried a banner reading, “We will defend our communities” organizing around the “community” as an alternative to the american proletariat.
During the battle, objects and fences were put to use by the anti-fascists to impede the advance of the fascist groups. However, fascists used sticks, poles, and even tear gas against the anti-fascists demonstrators.
