No Organized Counterprotest At Sacramento Pro-Trump Rally

 

 


UPDATE 2:34 p.m. -- The Los Angeles Times reports that violence broke out this afternoon at a pro-Trump rally in Huntington Beach.

So far, the rally in Sacramento has been peaceful, with some bystanders expressing their opposition but no organized counterprotest taking place.

Last June, a right-wing rally at the Capitol turned violent as white nationalists clashed with counterprotestors.


UPDATE 1:45 p.m. -- There is no organized counterprotest at the pro-Trump rally taking place in Sacramento, says Capital Public Radio's Andrew Nixon, who is documenting the event today.

Rally attendees are currently marching through midtown.


UPDATE 12:12 p.m.: Participants in a pro-Trump rally in Sacramento are gathering at McKinley Park, where between 200 and 300 people had gathered by shortly before noon Saturday.


Original Post: A pro-Trump rally billing itself as a MAGA March is planned for Saturday afternoon in Sacramento.

Organizers say attendees will be marching "in support for President Trump, our Military, Police, First Responders, and Veterans." The rally is part a number of events planned in cities nationwide today.

Anti-fascist group Antifa Sacramento says Saturday's rally attendees overlap with those in the rally at which white nationalists and counterprotestors clashed last June, and 10 people were injured.

Organizers say the rally will begin noon at Sutter’s Fort, 2700 L Street. Another march honoring labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez is also taking place in Sacramento today.
