What was supposed to happen Sunday June 26th 2016 was a mega-march of
white supremacists groups against what they deemed to be the anitifa
threat to their “faith, family and folk”. The Traditionalist Workers
Party, Golden State Skins and KKK were set to rally on the West Capitol
steps in Downtown Sacramento.
They never made it onto those steps. within seconds of stepping onto
the capitol they were chased away by a large crowd of anti-fascists.
Over 300 anti-fascists and anti-racists had converged hours before the
planned march in an attempt to shut it down. When 20 or so white
supremacists armed with shields and adorned with TWP imagery attempted
to take those steps they were attacked with rocks, bottles, knives,
bats, fists, pepper spray and anything that those antifa could get their
hands on. They were chased for blocks and when they attempted to escape
in a waiting car, all of its windows were smashed out.
In the end it wasn’t only white supremacist blood that splattered the
ground. Several antifa comrades had also been stabbed, received knife
wounds and suffered serious injuries. Later, the leader of the TWP would
call the blood pouring from the chests of our friends a “victory” for
him and his bonehead brethren.
Boneheads like the TWP ad GSS are only the most obvious and explicit
manifestations of white-supremacy. The police, the media and countless
other institutions uphold white-supremacy in our everyday lives. On the
26th, anti-fascists fought against the police and the media as well as
the more explicit racist in the streets. As more and more events occur
disrupting specific groups of white supremacists we think it is
important to remember that the fight against white-supremacy is not only
about a specific group or political candidate. The fight against
organized white supremacist groups cannot be separated from larger
struggles against the ways that white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia
and transphobia structure the everyday reality of domination in which we
live. We want to celebrate all those who attack these structures and
extend these spaces of revolt beyond moments like Sundays rally.
This is a call for a day of
solidarity with all those who put their lives and bodies on the line to
confront white supremacists in the streets of Sacramento on the 26th.
Solidarity means many things, and can articulate itself in many ways.
Demos, attacks, letter writings, benefits for medical fee, banner drops
and more are welcome on this day. Just make sure to securely take photos
or write reportbacks and post them itsgoingdown.org, anarchistnews.org or your local anarchist news source.
As our comrades recover in the hospital, let’s show them that we are
thinking about them and keep fighting white supremacy wherever it
