This Is How San Francisco Protests the Far Right
Authorities in San Francisco and Alameda counties prepared for the influx of fringe-right supporters over the weekend, hoping to squelch the assemblies from turning violent — like they have in the past — through a series of legal maneuvers and bureaucratic red tape.
And it seems to be working.
Patriot Prayer organizer Joey Gibson canceled his initial rally for Saturday afternoon at San Francisco’s Crissy Field and announced a press conference at Alamo Square. Then, on Saturday morning, he scrapped the Alamo Square event. It was unclear if he intended to organize other events.
