🚫No Nazis in Newnan!🚫 Daniel Making Them Work for It #DeadWeight
10 Arrests Made on Rally Day in Newnan, Georgia. All arrests occured before NSM's rally began. The 10 arrested were all counter protesters. ❓What Went Down: A coalition of civil rights, immigrant rights, pro-democracy, anti-fascist, and social justice activists marched in and around downtown Newnan a few hours before the permitted, white supremacist rally began. A heated exchange between the marchers and one Neo-Nazi sympathizer drew the attention of law enforcement. As tensions escalated, armed law enforcement officers switched gears, pointed their rifles at the group, and started giving the marchers direct orders: Stay on the sidewalk and take off your masks risk arrest. Only a handful of counter protesters were actually wearing masks and some refused to take them off. (Police cited a law that is a relic of the civil rights era, banning masks and hoods from being worn during public activity. The law was implemented to combat anonymous violence by the KKK while wearing their signature hoods in public.) My friend, pictured above, was NOT wearing a mask at any point during the day but was entangled in this adrenaline-charged moment by simply being in the group of marchers. He and 9 others were violently pulled out of the crowd, thrown to the ground, and arrested for obstructing a roadway that was already obstructed by police barricades on both ends. Law enforcement had been perpetuating fear in their officers during the weeks leading up to the event by focusing on potential damage and violence at the hands of ANTIFA. Members of many ANTIFA chapters were present but not all of the marchers were ANTIFA associates. No persons or property was put at risk by the counter protesting group. The excessive show of force by law enforcement has been met with serious public scrutiny. I encourage you to watch some of the live footage of the incident and decide for yourself who was right or wrong.
