BLACK BLOCK V.S. FASCISTS AND TRUMP SUPPORTERS IN BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA!

On Saturday, April 15th, a black bloc made up of young antifascists, anarchists, and communists fought against members of neo-nazi organizations and Donald Trump president’s supporters in Berkeley, California.

The police served as accomplices to the right wing groups allowing them access to the main area of the rally. Along with the usual “Make America Great Again” t-shirts and hats, the right wing groups carried anti-semitic signs, flags with nazi swastikas, and at times were even seen carrying out the nazi salute.

While the clashes took place, the black bloc bravely carried a banner reading, “We will defend our communities” organizing around the “community” as an alternative to the american proletariat.

During the battle, objects and fences were put to use by the anti-fascists to impede the advance of the fascist groups. However, fascists used sticks, poles, and even tear gas against the anti-fascists demonstrators.

¡BLOQUE NEGRO V.S. FASCISTAS Y SEGUIDORES DE TRUMP EN BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA!Por la tarde de este sábado 15 de abril, un bloque negro formado por jóvenes antifascistas, anarquistas y comunistas se enfrentaron a integrantes de organizaciones neo-nazis y seguidores del presidente Donald Trump.La policía tuvo un papel de cómplice con estos grupos al permitir su acceso al área principal del mitin. Además de vestir las ya conocidas playeras y gorras del "Make America Great Again", portaban símbolos anti-semitas, banderas con la esvástica nazi, realizando de una manera burlona el saludo nazi en distintas ocasiones durante el rally.Durante los enfrentamientos, el bloque negro portaba valerosamente una manta colocada en unos soportes de madera que decía "WE WILL DEFEND OUR COMMUNITIES" con respecto a la reivindicación del concepto de 'comunidad' como una alternativa de organización para el proletariado estadounidense.En la campal, utilizaron objetos y bardas del inmobiliario público para impedir el avance de los grupos fascistas, sin embargo estos utilizaron palos e incluso pequeños gases lacrimógenos M-80 para violentar a sus opositores.BLACK BLOCK V.S.
