VIOLENT PROTESTS

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — by Lisa Amin Gulezian and Amy Hollyfied

Tens of thousands of people across the Bay Area turned out in protest of Arizona’s tough new immigration law. The demonstrations went on all day and some stretched into the night.

In San Jose, thousands of marchers headed to an evening rally at city hall. In San Francisco, a separate demonstration wrapped up in the afternoon, but not without a bit of trouble.

Three people were attacked and at least two others were arrested. The people assaulted were part of the Minutemen demonstration, a group in favor of Arizona’s new immigration law.

They said a large group of immigrants’ rights supporters followed them to the BART station on Market Street and started punching and kicking them, and calling them names.

“They said we were racists, and we were against them, and against their town, and against San Francisco,” said Parker Wilson with the Bay Area National Anarchists. “What they were saying, they said we need to get out and called us racists, and that we need to go home. And then they just attacked my friends and me.”

Calif. immigrants’ rights march ends in vandalism

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Close to 20 businesses were damaged after what started as a peaceful immigrants’ rights march in downtown Santa Cruz turned violent, requiring police to call other agencies for help, authorities said.

Police spokesman Zach Friend said an estimated 250 people started marching through the city around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

It was a harmonious but “unpermitted and unsanctioned event,” he said, until some in the crowd started breaking windows and spraying paint on retail shops that line the downtown corridor.

Over 400 Tea Parties now and the only violence is from the left.  Now the left demonstrates and the only violence is from the left.  There’s no doubt in my mind who is violent, who is racist or who the bigots really are, no matter where they try to point their fingers.

And, the spray paint.  Is it a fashion accessory?  Is it like American Express…Don’t leave home without it?  Prove you belong here, demand the same rights as citizens; destroy property!
