Anti-Nazi counterprotest in Los Angeles this Saturday

The "alt-right," aka LITERAL NAZIS like the ones who murdered Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, is planning a protest in Los Angeles this Saturday. Here's what I found when I went looking for a counter-protest. I will be there.

Obviously, this could be dangerous. But I am not letting LITERAL NAZIS march in my city unopposed. Besides, it could be a great opportunity:

Please let me know if you're going, so we can rideshare or try to meet up or something.

Have you seen the sousaphone guy? I laaaaaughed -- he marched in parallel to the Nazis and played the most ludicrous comical accompaniment. It made them look ridiculous and that is great.

If the spouse's mother is back from the hospital and doesn't need him, I will try to go. But it might be a few days before we know.

Good for you, and good luck!

Alas, actual Nazis have been in my town and I have done nothing. This is partly because I don't have Facebook and thus often don't learn about the demonstrations and counter-demonstrations, but also because I do lots of other activism and you can't do everything.

Was looking for something like this earlier this evening. I have no idea what parking will be like. It was hell the last time I was there, and it was just a weekday.
