Refuse Fascism, the leading ANTIFA group in the United States, is planning nearly two dozen protests on Saturday, November 4, according to their website. The planned protests, a list of which is included below, have raised concerns that, like past protests, Antifa members will once again use violence.
Antifa members have claimed that the November 4 protests are part of an effort to force President Donald Trump from office, and will likely attract counter-protesters, raising the likelihood of violence.
In addition, the ACLU Of Pennsylvania is assisting protesters by providing an educational seminar of the rights ANTIFA members have when they protest.
On their website, Refuse Fascism makes this statement:
Take To The Streets And Public Squares, in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night—not stopping—until our DEMAND is met. This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!
The cities planning ANTIFA protests, marches, and rallies include the following:
- Falmouth, MA
- Los Angeles
- New York City
- San Francisco
Here is a list of all planned Refuse Fascism protests, along with times and locations. Special instructions or declarations by the group on the website for the event are listed in italics.
