San Francisco mayor praises residents, police in wake of peaceful protests Saturday

Sunday's demonstration: activities and resources

Meanwhile, scheduled speaker at Saturday's canceled Patriot Prayer rally in San Francisco, Kyle Chapman, was under court order to stay away from the Berkeley rally after being jailed and released on bail Friday for charges related to a rally and riot in Berkeley in March.

To be even more specific, the group named two prominent leaders of white nationalist organizations. Hooded anarchists, who identified themselves as such with flags, pepper-sprayed Gibson.

They report that "dark-clothed anarchists attacked at least five people" including Gibson, and Orange County based right-wing activist Johnny Benitez also had to be escorted out of the area by police.

Police in the San Francisco area have been braced for violence and trying to prevent protests that draw left-wing and right-wing opponents since the deadly confrontation in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12 that occurred during a rally of white supremacists. Nonetheless, thousands of protestors-both pro-Turmp and anti-Trump-arrived at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr.

Organizer Amber Cummings said that Berkeley officials and left-wing extremists made it impossible to hold the event and she would be the sole attendee.

Police have set up barricades in a downtown Berkeley park in preparation for possible demonstrations by right-wing and left-wing groups.


Protesters said they feared the violence would create a much-needed distraction for Trump and his supporters need to deflect attention from his response to Charlottesville. Peaceful anti-Trump protesters expressed discontent with antifa; one woman told the LA Times that she anxious the march would be tied to violence, while another man said, "We need to get antifa out of here".

"What you saw today is a city that came together", he said.

CNN affiliate KRON reported at least one arrest of a man who claimed he was detained because he was wearing a mask. Members of the group hid their faces behind bandanas and masks while chanting and confronting right-wing protesters. The Chronicle reported that some participants carried "signs reading 'Berkeley stands united against hate, ' 'Queers against hate, ' and 'End white supremacy, '" while others handed out "no hate" shields.

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.

"San Francisco as a whole, we are a liberal city and this is not a place for hate or any sort of bigotry of any kind", said protester Bianca Harris.
