Thousands of demonstrators turn out in San Francisco to denounce white supremacists – Los Angeles Times

Thousands of protesters were in a celebratory mood across San Francisco on Saturday, claiming victory over a right-wing group that, in the face of large-scale resistance, canceled a rally near the Golden Gate Bridge and a subsequent news conference.

The rally’s cancellation didn’t stop counter-protesters and anti-fascists from showing up in force with a message that far-right groups, including neo-Nazis and white supremacists, are not welcome in this liberal, diverse city.

Droves of people filled the streets around Alamo Square Park, then marched through the Mission District with blaring party music as they fired off chants in opposition to the Trump administration, racism and the violence that plagued Charlottesville, Va., during a rally earlier this month.

“We defeated hate!” one man shouted.
