Stand up to fascists in Oakland:

Eric Clanton was arrested in connection with the anti-fascist counter-protests on April 15th in Berkeley. This is not just a trial against one person — police persecution of people resisting fascism is growing across the country. Berkeley Police also appear to collaborated with far right extremists, using information supplied by them in order to make the initial arrest. At Eric’s first two court dates, hate groups showed up flying nazi inspired flags and intimidated families going into court. Eric and his supporters are asking anyone who opposes racist, sexist, fascists and their growing movement of hate to come out and support.
Unfortunately, showing up can carry some risk. These groups have been known to try and video anyone who opposes their xenophobia and misogyny, and then try and identify those people online in order to harass, intimidate, and spread false information in an attempt to incriminate people. We want people to come out, but we want folks to know there is some risk in doing so and to decide how to be supportive accordingly.
