Solidarity Against Hate [Seattle]
August 13, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Seattle has hosted a few too many hateful, violent, far-right extremist rallies this year. Again, far-right extremists will converge on Westlake Park in Seattle on August 13th.
The same violent, street-fighting crews that have been hopping from Vancouver, WA to Portland, OR to Seattle, WA and back again are expected to be principle participants in this event. When they come, they bring violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and Islamaphobia (among other forms of bigotry) to our town.
The community is coming together to say we won’t stand for it. Join the Greater Seattle IWW General Defense Committee Local 24, Seattle Solidarity, the Freedom Socialist Party – Seattle Branch, Radical Women Seattle Branch, International Socialist Organization – Seattle Branch, and others in a display of strength in solidarity with our targeted community members against the barrage of hate and violence coming from the ever-emboldened far-right. If you have questions, concerns, or would like to get your organization on board with this action please email us at contact@greaterseattlegdc.
POINT OF UNITY:
The bigotry, racism and violence that far-right organizers are bringing to Seattle on August 13 th cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Regardless of our diverse political affiliations and views, we understand that solidarity and unity in action is our strongest weapon. Solidarity enables us to overcome the barriers towards building a powerful, democratic working-class movement.
We will be shoulder–to-shoulder with all in our community who are targeted by the far-right in a unified, orderly, and militant counter-protest.
