Call for counter actions by Northern Colorado Antifa Collective.
Originally published by Northern Colorado Antifa Collective on Facebook.
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
Saturday June 10th, 15:00 – 17:00 MDT, Capitol Hill, Denver, Colorado, USA.
Defend Denver Against “National March Against Sharia”
“National March Against Sharia,” as organized by Act for America and promoted by the Proud Boys and other white supremacist/Alt Right organizations, seeks to target Muslim communities (all of which have been deemed by Act for America as “cancerous” and “radical”) and inflict terror based off of the false and shallow assumption that somehow Sharia law will take over the United States in practice.
Of course, we know this to be false, and that this assumption comes from misconceptions and fear with regards to the faith of Islam. Nonetheless, anti-Muslim rhetoric and action will be taking place on this day, June 10, around the world and on the footsteps of the Denver Capitol.
The Proud Boys and other white supremacist organizations are manipulating this national event into being blatantly anti-Islam and anti-Muslim, and are using it as an opportunity to perpetuate their hate-filled agendas.
We cannot let this happen. We are calling for all pro-Muslim supporters to come to the Capitol and counter protest. We cannot let such hate speak be put into motion. Whether you are antifa or just a concerned community member, we are asking for your support and your help to defend our Muslim brothers and sisters.
This “National March Against Sharia” has been promoted by the Proud Boys and Denver has been advertised specifically, so there should be a large sum of anti-Muslim supporters there. Even if there is not, however, it is a good opportunity to show up for something you believe in and show our state that we will not put up with any more anti-Muslim sentiments from our community members.
Tentative list of speakers:
*Also to note: end time is dependant on when opposition and the initial marchers (those which we are counter protesting) leave. We will stay until they leave.
