Coverage today of #AllOutDC. "I'm a native Washingtonian, and what we're not going to do is allow the alt-right or the Proud Boys or the right wing to come to our city and amplify hate, bigotry, and racism." aljazeera.com/news/2019/07/a…
"Proud Boys, an extremist group with ties to white nationalism...was outnumbered..." usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
"Proud Boys and their allies rallied in downtown Washington, D.C., on Saturday, but were vastly outnumbered counter-protesters and hamstrung by a muddled message, a depleted lineup, and a bungled stunt by their founder." thedailybeast.com/proud-boys-dc-…

Large anti-racist block party underway in Pershing Park in Washington, DC to counter-protest the far-right Proud Bous rally happening nearby in Freedom Plaza. A few hundred attendees estimated on either side.
Large group of DC police on bikes formed this new line, then fell back, when a large group marched in to join the anti-racist protest
Here’s the view of the Proud Boy’s “Demand Free Speech” really from Pershing Park. Maybe 200 Proud Boys & supporters, we estimate 4-500 at the #AllOutDC counter rally

Some early data for hashtags related to today's rally. #DemandFreeSpeech network is split between right-wing accounts promoting the event and left/center commentary; #AllOutDC is mostly traffic in favor of the counterprotest. Not much automation present.

Sadly the Laura Loomer fan club live stream has been interrupted and I am forced to embrace other options.
A high point of the #DefendFreeSpeech rally: dude dressed as a giant eyeball holding up a "DRAIN THE SWAMP = 911 TRUTH" sign. #AltWankers

I’m in downtown DC where the far-right and antifa are attending dueling rallies across the street from each other. Updates ⬇️. @WTOP #AllOutDC #DemandFreeSpeech
I don’t see a lot of movement at all between the two sides, police have a buffer zone in place on 14th Street that makes it impossible to cross over unless you walk a few blocks on F Street.
Threading my 10-second rough sketch of the situation, this’ll give you an idea of the setup here if you’re not familiar with DC.

I’m out in DC this afternoon. #AllOutDC #DefendDC
DC ain’t Charlottesville. I had a cop come up to me on the subway saying he liked my sign.
The tourists are broadly sympathetic, too, and the #MAGA hatters look distinctly uncomfortable.

On the anniversary of #Charlottesville, join the movement @privtoprog and tell your network that you will NOT BE SILENT! #ShowUp
On April 12, @MichelleSaahene and I sparked a national conversation with the video of two young men being unjustly arrested @starbucks for doing what people who look like me do every day without incident.
That conversation started a movement to build awareness that when allies educate themselves, speak up in their everyday lives and amplify on social media, they choose to be part of the solution.
