San Franciscans Plan to Dance in Face of White Nationalist Rally
The Bay Area is bracing itself for two white nationalist rallies planned to take place in San Francisco and Berkeley August 26th and 27th. And there are few things more San Franciscan than promoting love and inclusion in the face of ignorance and bigotry. Some citizens are planning to dance and party in the face of hatred and fear mongering, and they are welcoming you to join.
Checkout “The Mobile Dance Party Counter Rally“, to dance out fascism in the bay! And if you can’t make the rally but want to help protest these white nationalists anyway, check out this awesome idea to financially dissuade those turkeys from ever showing up again.
Via the Dance Master Daveed Walzer –
“Show the alt-right, white nationalists that SF is the city that knows how; by providing an alternative to hate, confrontation and aggression.
On Saturday, August 26, the white right and their friends will be having a “Freedom Rally” to essentially provoke a violent response and garner attention.
I’m hoping to not play into their hands….
What we have in mind…
US: We bring a mobile, portable FM transmitter and broadcast as many bangin, cheesy, party pop dance athems as you can shake your amazing booty to.
YOU: Dress in your amazing colorful fabulous best AND bring a battery powered boom box. The more boomboxes the more music, the more counter-rally goodness. We’re talking a couple hundred happy people, with a soundsytem in everyone’s hands.
WE: We gather at the Marina Green to kind of get things sorted, get the mood/party started. Then make our way near to Crissy Field to have our own rally. THE POINT IS NOT TO INTERRUPT OR CONFRONT THE WHITE NATIONALIST RALLY, but to provide a nearby, better, inclusive, visible alternative.
Right now we are in the thinking planning stage and looking for friends and allies to join the effort. Share your thoughts and invite your friends.”
