Hosted by Milwaukee IWW
310 W Locust Street, Milwaukee Public Library, 5:30 – 7:30 P.M.
A brave antifascist has been murdered standing up to violent hate in Charlottesville Virginia. A coalition of far-right groups invaded Charlottesville for a “Unite the Right” rally to oppose the removal of a confederate monument and the re-naming of Lee Park to Emancipation Park. A huge counter-demonstration gathered to oppose these White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and other right-wing hate groups and their message of hate and violence. We are horrified to see that a Fascist drove their car full speed into the mass demonstration of Antifascists, killing at least one and seriously injuring a dozen others.
The General Defense Committee of the IWW is holding a meeting to discuss next steps for defending our communities and responding to the rising tide of hate. Join us at the Martin Luther King Library for a breif know your rights training followed by some planning.
