As many of us are aware, the aftermath of the June 26, 2016 Nazi shutdown in Sacramento is far from over. In an attempt to regain some control over the situation, the state is in the midst of pursuing criminal charges against one neo-Nazi and three anti-racist protesters involved in the riot. The anti-racist defendants’ trial is fast approaching- check out our Facebook page for ways to support them. The one neo-Nazi in question, William Planer, has just been tried. After extended deliberation, and despite clear evidence of his participation in the brutal assaults that occurred that day, the jury was unable to reach a verdict. The judge has declared it a mistrial, and a second trial has been scheduled. Planer remains in Sacramento county jail.

Looking Back: Anti-Fascism in Northern California 2016-2017

Reposted from NoCARA

Anti-fascist mobilization against the fascist convergence in Berkeley on August 27, 2017. Banner reads, “Avenge Charlottesville. Defend your communities.”

As mainstream media coverage of the anti-fascist struggle has skyrocketed over the last year, we’ve noticed that questions surrounding it have largely been confined to concern over a narrowly defined free speech. This has been accompanied by numerous, sometimes deliberate, misrepresentations. While narratives of violence have tended to be over-represented in accounts of anti-fascist and anti-racist organizing, reporting on the alt-right has been the opposite, downplaying the violence inherent to the recently re-energized white nationalist movement. Because clashes in Northern California between anti-fascists and white supremacists have captured so much media attention over the last year, we feel it necessary to place these incidents within their proper context.

**Updated** Sacramento Attorney Danny Brace Defends Neo-Nazi William Planer

**UPDATE: Danny Brace is no longer William Planer’s attorney. It has been brought to our attention that Brace and Planer were unable to agree on a defense strategy, and have decided to part ways. Brace has been replaced by Michelle Spaulding, who was retained as Planer’s new attorney on record at his February 23rd court appearance. Spaulding is arguing a self defense strategy for Planer, and they are now preparing for his upcoming trial. A private attorney from the Spaulding and Campi law firm located at 901 H st, suite #200, Michelle Spaulding clearly has no problem taking money raised by the now defunct Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) for Planer’s legal defense via donations from white supremacists across the country. Visit our Facebook page to learn how you can join our campaign against Michelle Spaulding and her collaboration with this dangerous neo-Nazi.**
