TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY ANTIFA COMEBACK: PROTEST MARTYR TRIBUTE AND PLANNING EPIC DEMONSTRATION!!!
The Kansas City struggle against hateration kicks into high gear after a weekend of deadly and violent culture war confrontation.
To wit and the latest from anti-facists . . .
KANSAS CITY ANTIFA RALLIES LOCAL SUPPORT AND PROTESTER KILLED OVER THE WEEKEND!!!
There's also a NO PLACE FOR HATE rally double take coming up for the weekend.
As always, it's best to let the group speak for itself as "antifa" is loosely comprised of local associations like the PYO, One Struggle KC and more . . .
Fight Back for Charlottesville!
Heather Heyer became a hero and a martyr to all working and oppressed people on August 12 in Charlottesville, VA. Heather was participating in a counter-demonstration of a large white supremacist, alt-right and neo-nazi rally that recently captured national attention.
To honor the memory of Heather and all our wounded soldiers from Charlottesville, we are calling on all anti-fascists and community members who oppose fascism to gather for a solidarity and remembrance rally, at the same time and location that some of our area white supremacists are planning a hate rally of their own.
Many of you will remember ACT for America* from the recent "March Against Sharia" on June 10. This anti-Islam hate group and white supremacist front will be holding one of their white supremacist hate rallies, disguised as a pro-America 9/11 memorial rally, on 9/9 at the same time and place as we are scheduling this event. Using 9/11 as an excuse to spew their hate makes this even more disgraceful, and is extremely disrespectful to the victims and the families affected by this tragedy.
Our martyrs deserve better than candlelight vigils. We welcome people who are pissed or sad or angry, and ready to unleash all your fury, sadness, and despair from this past weekend's event onto these local white supremacists who are aligned with the murderous far-right that attacked our comrades in Charlottesville**.
Bring flags, bring placards, bring signs, etc. that convey messages of solidarity with Charlottesville and our martyr Heather Heyer.
Our primary concern for this demonstration is safety and security, which we will put a lot of effort into so that the people on our side can feel safe. Our aim is to make this rally safe for everyone in attendance, whether you're a militant anti-fascist, or just an average person who wants to show some support for the folks in Charlottesville. All who oppose what happened in Charlottesville are welcome.
Our goals at this rally can be summed up as:
1. To take the emphasis off the fascist rally, and put the empahasis on a message of solidarity with Charlottesville, and a remembrance of the martyr Heather Heyer.
2. To keep the fascists pinned back behind police lines and fences, and unable to march. When fascists feel safe enough to march, they will only grow in numbers.
3. To obscure and drown out their message, again, focusing our message on Charlottesville and anti-fascism.
4. To further develop organized anti-fascism in KC, and to network with less experienced anti-fascists and community members to help them get organized, so we can prepare ourselves in case something like what happened in Charlottesville ever occurs here.
