We have an AmRRON member on the ground sending in SPOT reports from the protest in Berkeley, CA. Here are the SPOT reports:

 

SUMMARY REPORT:

Size: 100
Activity: paid protester’s attacking police and rally attendees
Location: martin Luther king jr park Berkeley, CA
Unit: antifa elements, paid protesters
Time & Duration: 8 am to 2 pm
Equipment: m80’s, fireworks, brass knuckles, rocks, poles, sharp objects

Narrative: I misreported rally end time, should be 1400 PDT.

Some folks arrived very early for the rally and were met by paid protesters and members of antifa clad all in black with face masks on. About 10:30 the radical threw a m80 into the assembled talk group and used it as a diversion fir the police while they hit rally goers with brass knuckles and shot pepper spray directly in their eyes. Berkeley PD posture and response was weak but the maintained a corridor between the radicals and rally goers. To the organizers credit they started the rally early and were very kind to non-violent but vocally distubtuve folks from the radicals within the permitted rally area. Ti protect the rally goers a group of attendees remained behind the thin police line to prevent radicals attacking the speakers and attendees. Unfortunately these folks took the brunt of the terrorist acts from anifa and paid protestors. One man had serious damage ti his nose from brass knuckles, another had multiple lacerations on his side, another was hobbled when a rock struck his knee, 10-15 gad to be treated for pepper spray being deployed into their eyes, several treated fir lacerations due to m80’s and fireworks being deployed into their faces. As the violence progressed the Berkeley PD became more professional, improved its defensive posture and improved the separation o the radicals from the rally. Rally security ensured no disruptions to speakers and no rushing if the radicals into the attendees. Rally medical attended to all who were injured, men and women were injured, many if those who were treated went right back to protecting the perimeters to prevents radicals from gaining entry. Overall a very successful rally and a firm stanch for free speech and First Amendment rights here in the heart of communist country. As the rally ended Te antifa group began attacking the police and refusing ti disperse, I do hope none of the Berkeley police were injured today, whip they started skiw, they finished in a very professional manner.
