San Bernardino, CA: Report Back From Counter-Demo Against Anti-Muslim Protest

On November 18th, the counter-demonstrators showed up a couple of hours before the scheduled anti-muslim march. Counter-demonstrators were full of energy and ready to take on the Nazis if they were to show up. The Islamophobes started to arrive at their planned location at around 11:00am. Soon after, about four of them attempted to cross over to counter-demonstration’s corner, but antifascists were able to push them back.

The numbers for the Islamophobes peaked at about 25, while the numbers on the counter-demonstration’s side stayed at about 40-50. As the protest went on, the anti-muslim crowd started thinning and some of them started to get frustrated at their loss. A few of them decided to visit counter-demonstration corner once again, but were quickly pushed back by the antifascists.

During the protest the Islamophobes were fairly quiet and only occasionally were we able to hear their weak chants about their unconditional love for USA and their hate for muslims. Overall, counter-demonstration’s chants were much louder and were drowning them out. From now on, let us all pledge to bravely and proudly stand up against hate and bigotry whenever it sets foot in our community!

No pasarán!
