Solidaritycville.com put out this call on July 25th:
On August 12, the alt-right plans to descend on our small town of Charlottesville, VA. Right now they claim to be bringing as many as 1,000 people to terrorize and intimidate anyone who disagrees with their ideology of white supremacy and toxic masculinity. We must outnumber them in order to #DefendCville. This is an all call to everyone across the nation who feels called to stand in solidarity with Charlottesville to shout loud and clear that we say absolutely #NoNewKKK. Bring your friends, bring your skills, bring your voices, we are deeply grateful for every offer of support.”
No Trump, NO KKK, NO Fascist USA! The nazi convergence on Charlottesville on August 12 can be a leap in the unleashing, consolidating, and organizing of fascist storm-troopers nationally or a leap in the direction of building a movement to drive out the Trump/Pence regime and their fascist thugs. Don’t sit by while vicious racism and xenophobia are normalized as a legitimate ideology. Don’t normalize Nazism by letting them parade around in public and terrorize. Don’t accommodate fascism by waiting it out while it consolidates power and unleashes its shock troops. Don’t sit by. Drive them OUT of Charlottesville and out of power!
Refusefascsim.org is calling on people to join in protesting these fascist thugs that have become emboldened by the fascists in the White House. Folks should take out NO! posters/stickers and bring in the demand: “This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” All those who are righteously standing up to these nazis should know about the plans for November 4th (take to the streets and not leave until this regime is driven from power) and be invited to join in the planning and preparation that will take place at August 19 Regional Meetings.
Other groups have joined the call to to resist white supremacy and confront the rise of fascism:
