Call for a mass mobilization against far-Right groups rallying in Philadelphia on November 17th.
On Saturday, November 17, a coalition of far-Right groups spearheaded by The Proud Boys and various militia groups, along with Keystone United/Keystone State Skinheads, one of the most violent white supremacist gangs in Pennsylvania, will be gathering in Philadelphia for a “We the People Rally.”
On November 17th, white supremacist organizations from Proud Boys to Three Percenters will *attempt* to march in Philadelphia. The Gritty Army says no. Be there for the #Pushback pic.twitter.com/aPQ8LxZgye

We’ve seen nationwide the violence and bigoted terror that happens when the far-Right organizes under the guise of “Patriotism” or “Nationalism,” and we’ve seen the deadly consequences of an emboldened insurgent fascist movement that’s been allowed a platform upon which to fester and spread their toxic and evil ideology.
We urge all people who can make it to show up and oppose them, to not concede a single inch and to not allow them any chance to recruit or grow in power. There will be a mass action coordinated by the Pushback Campaign to oppose them at the Independence Hall Visitor Center at 10:00 AM.
Come to Philly and help stop the Far Right from gaining a foothold! Proud Boys (under the name 'Sports Beer & Politics') and 3%ers are rallying & local Nazis KSS want in, too. Join the #PushBack Campaign @PushBackCmpgn on Nov 17 and help Philly push the Far Right out of town!! pic.twitter.com/tTUMnq0Dxw

We also strongly encourage people to autonomously organize themselves and trusted friends into action and to be creative with how to oppose these fascists and ensure that they do not feel welcome in our city. We must ensure that Philadelphia does not become a hub of their organizing and that they are impeded every step of the way, and we must inspire a broader base of support for opposing them in the future!
In solidarity with the Pushback Campaign and all Autonomous groups and collectives involved in organizing this stalwart opposition, and those doing similar around the world! More info can be found here as well.
