Berkeley Protests Over, Police Defend Handling

Berkeley Far-Right Rally Not Permitted But Appears to Be Happening

The San Francisco Police Department, however, did advise on its official Twitter account for people to stay away from the area. Another right-wing rally titled "Patriot Prayer" also was canceled, reported KCRA. But officers had fenced off the park by early Saturday morning. When the press conference never materialized, the crowds - relishing the turn of events - simply celebrated en masse. Several thousand people who counterprotested the rally were not connected to anarchist groups or antifa, according to the Chronicle, and the counterprotest was largely peaceful. Sunday's rally was to be the provocatively titled "No to Marxism in America", seemingly created to needle Berkeley's famously liberal populace.

The recent violence has sparked outrage among Twitter users. Gibson, who condemned white supremacism and neo-Nazism at a recent rally, says his group is not racist in nature. Any group that claims "hate speech is not free speech" is going to become not just censorious but violent pretty quickly.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she "had grave concerns about the public safety hazard.by permitting a white supremacist rally".

By mid-afternoon Ms. Cummings had not appeared and left-wing protesters far outnumbered right-wing supporters. "They did not have enough gumption to do what they set out to do". The march turned violent after a 20-year-old man plowed his vehicle into a group of counter-demonstrators protesting against racism, killing a woman and injuring 20 others. Citing the potential for violence, she cancelled the event but said she would show up on her own.

Gibson, however, was not finished. At about 12:30, there were a few hundred anti-hate demonstrators in the park, with hundreds more on the surrounding streets. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee declared victory over a group he branded as inviting hate. "Hand in hand!" during a standoff between protesters and police in Berkeley on Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017. Update at 2:45 p.m.

Elsewhere in the city, police erected barricades in the downtown area and had the location swept for explosives.

Yankees' Gary Sanchez, Austin Romine Suspended For Brawl With Tigers
The Sanchez suspension could be costly for the Yankees, who are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. It was unknown whether Sanchez or Romine would appeal their suspensions.

Many saw the weekend, ultimately, as a win.

"Yesterday, we showed to the world that love conquers hate".

A number of confrontations broke out at Martin Luther King Jr.

However, the group later said the news conference would be held indoors.

He's the head of Patriot Prayer who organized Saturday's protest at Crissy Field in San Francisco and cancelled it. A handful of rally participants still showed up, causing counter protesters to come out of the woodwork en masse, SF Gate reported.
