'Antifa' activists violently disrupt right-wing rally in Berkeley

Antifa infiltrated a generally peaceful left-wing counter-march - in which protesters denounced President Trump and white nationalism - targeting "Patriot Prayer" organizers, the Associated Press reports. He applauded officers' restraint, saying it forestalled greater violence.

Police reported 14 arrests for violating the city's emergency rules by wearing masks and bringing potential weapons inside a demonstration area.

Joey Gibson, founder of Patriot Prayer, was hit with a pole, sprayed with tear gas and struck with thrown debris as he tried to escape from an angry crowd, as shown on video taken at the protest.

However, as KQED reports, anger from locals did persuade the park service to help the rally opponents' cause in one important way: a list of prohibited items. Another rally is planned for a few miles away in Berkeley, where far right demonstrators had a blowout fight with anti-fascists in the streets in April (it's also unclear whether this rally will happen either).

He said that "certain voices" will find it hard to be heard in San Francisco, and that people who want to speak need to have a message that "contributes to people's lives rather than find ways to hurt them".

However, Taylor Swift recently teased that new "snake-related" music was coming soon over social media posts last week. Fans believe the choker is symbolic of Swift finally releasing her chains and telling her side of the story.

Gibson held a pro-Trump event in Portland, Oregon, in June that reportedly attracted "white nationalists and other far-right extremists", according to the Huffington Post.

The counter-demonstrators surrounded their outnumbered rivals, chanting: "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA" and "Go home Nazi". "Our nation is deeply divided, but Berkeley will forge onward to protect immigrants, people of color and others who are marginalized, and to continue to peacefully stand up for justice", the mayor said. Two others were detained for wearing masks. They assaulted at least four people by punching and kicking them. In a message to the media Saturday she said she might be forced to cancel if she is not provided police protection.

"The San Francisco Police Department has an enhanced presence at Alamo Square and in the surrounding neighborhoods", a police spokesperson told The Chronicle.

Campus officials will add more police to the event than were present for the scheduled appearance of another conservative, Milo Yiannopoulos, Christ said. Protesters descended on the streets of Berkeley demonstrating against a planned far-right rally that was called off late Saturday by its organizer.

Student activism was born during the 1960s free-speech movement at Berkeley, when thousands of students at the university mobilised to demand that the school drop its ban on political activism.
