Arrested After New Berkeley Protests Turn Violent

Gibson also called on Mayor Lee and Pelosi to speak against the violence from Antifa and other radical counter-protesters at a hastily called press conference. "While I personally hold strictly to the principles of non-violence, I have never been able to say that antifa is necessarily wrong that Fascism may need to be confronted differently", he writes.

Many in San Francisco were disappointed on Wednesday when the National Park Service approved the permit for the Patriot Prayer event.

By mid-afternoon Ms. Cummings had not appeared and left-wing protesters far outnumbered right-wing supporters.

Police in riot gear fired a rubber bullet at a demonstrator who attempted to cross a barricade into the park, according to the Los Angeles Times, while protesters set off smoke bombs.

Another suspect attacked a police officer, with a sword. "I heard yelling and straight away two shots", said one witness, Yohan. The prosecutors said they would make a final ruling once the results of an autopsy on the suspect and ballistic tests are known.

"It's the least I can do", said Chandra, a 40-year-old Hayes Street resident who lives near the park and was handing out cups of water to anti-hate demonstrators on a hot and sunny San Francisco day. (Sheraz Sadiq/KQED) Marco Gutierrez, a Donald Trump supporter, argues about immigration issues with a crowd of people protesting the far right in Berkeley on Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017. Those uniformed officers did not respond to those provocations, retreating back from Civic Center Park after it became clear that the right's anti-Marxist brigades would be a no-show.

Most of the 13 people arrested were locals from the East Bay, while others hailed from Oregon, Nevada and San Diego County. One poor man had urine poured in his face.

"You are an immigrant", Karla Fonseca said. Every so often, chanting counterprotesters would encircle someone wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and chase them out of the park, often as police officers would try to shield the Trump supporter.

They assaulted at least three people by punching and kicking them. People at the park are also not allowed to cover their faces with scarves or bandanas.

Ausmus said he was most surprised by the light suspension given to Sanchez, who threw two punches at players pinned on the ground. Fulmer looked like he might be hurt after throwing that pitch, and he was checked by the trainer before staying in the game.

Gibson said Saturday that he was planning to organize a rally September 10 in Portland, Oregon. Participants carried signs condemning white supremacy, racism and hate speech.

Campus officials will add more police to the event than were present for the scheduled appearance of another conservative, Milo Yiannopoulos, Christ said.

Berkeley authorities are preparing for potential clashes at a city park even though the person behind a right-wing rally called off the event.

Student activism was born during the 1960s free-speech movement at Berkeley, when thousands of students at the university mobilized to demand that the school drop its ban on political activism.
