Where the alt-right rallies with hundreds, or even dozens, it should be met with thousands. On July 6th, two days after Donald Trump’s July 4th rally, the alt-right is planning a convergence in the DC at Freedom Plaza. #AlloutDC is calling on every one of good conscience to join us.
Many of the speakers on July 6th embraced the Alt-Right label before “Hailgate” in DC and the neo-Nazi Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Afterwards, they rebranded as New Right, Alt-Lite, or simply “conservatives,” while keeping the same set of uber-nationalist, far-Right, and race centered politics.
Speakers includes Laura Loomer, a banned Twitter-personality notorious for promoting Islamophobia; long time political huckster Roger Stone who uses the Proud Boys as personal security; GOP hopeful Omar Navarro who marches along side neo-Nazis in the Rise Above Movement; Jack Posobiec who livestreamed from inside Comet Pizza and denies working alongside the neo-Nazi Clark brothers despite being photographed; Enrique Tarrio who participated in the neo-Nazi Unite the Right rally as part of the ‘Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights;’ Mike Cernovich, who speaks openly in favor of date rape; and billionaire puppet Milo Yiannopoulos, who harassed trans women at AU, taught College Republicans to snitch on the undocumented, and sang America the Beautiful in front of Richard Spencer giving Hitler salutes while helping to mainstream white nationalism at Breitbart.
This rally isn’t about freedom of speech, it’s about protecting the promotion of hate and bigotry. Whether in bulletproof vests, police badges, MAGA hats, or in khakis, fascists thrive when we look the other way.
Our movements brought down old symbols of racism. Confronted neo-nazi celebrities and pushed them out of the political mainstream. DC is not new to this. We remember the days before Unite the Right when Nazis brandished guns and Confederate flags in Southeast DC. When Richard Collins III was murdered at the hands of a local alt-right extremist. Where MPD resists implementing the NEAR act, for community accountability of police.
And in the suburbs, we see white nationalist sheriffs working through 287(g) contracts to kidnap, imprison, and deport migrants. Right here DC, we saw the Clark brothers planning similar attacks to the Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue massacre.

Outside a rally in DC, Richard Spencer poses with the Clark brothers, two neo-Nazis who were in contact with man who carried out the massacre at the Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018. One would go on to be arrested on gun charges, the other killed himself after correspondence between himself and the Pittsburgh synagogue killer surfaced.
If we want to live in a world where black and brown people are not locked in cages, or killed by right-wing police; where public safety is community lead. Where people from Mexico, Honduras, and El Salvador are more free to move across borders than dirty fossil fuel corporations. Wherever state violence grows, we must support communities of resistance.
Not only will we deny the alt-right a platform, but we will also build the capacity to undermine the border, prison system, and welcome the free movement of people. Our collective vision for a world based on solidarity, support, and autonomy begins with our collective resistance now.
Together we can stop the alt-right and watch Trump’s white supremacist fantasies crumble once and for all.
Come out and support the coming #AlloutDC mobilization. Let us show why thousands of people greeted less than 20 scared nazis last year for Unite The Right 2. There are real alternatives in our community to xenophobia and white supremacy. Neighbors support neighbors at several Really Really Free Markets/free stores, communities bailing out black mothers, and communities welcoming newcomers. Our vision for a more free society where we share power and support each other is in direct conflict with the Proud Boys and fascists coming to DC.
It should be met with communities willing to defend the most marginalized.
Hold a solidarity demonstration against organized hate and white supremacy. Mobilize against a new jail, 287g contacts, or funding line of private prisons/ICE detention centers such as Wells Fargo, Suntrust, or Bank of America. Organize a benefit to bail out black mothers, mutual aid disaster relief, resistance on the borderlands, or show the values of mutual aid and solidarity. Occupy ICE headquarters or police stations.
Each time a fascist shows up in one of our community lets show that community-led resistance and solidarity is a real alternative to authoritarianism, hate, and xenophobia.
