SF Actions Leading Up to August 26
Friday, August 18
Friday, 1:00pm, NPS Sit-In: No “Patriot Prayer” in SF!
National Parks Services
333 Bush St.
Citizens of SF, Mayor Lee and other City Officials, and local activism groups are all staunchly opposed to the white supremacist “Patriot Prayer” rally (see: http://www.sfexaminer.com/sf-lawmakers-demand-feds-deny-permit-patriot-prayer-rally/) but NPS has issued permit for 8/26 and plans to uphold.
In light of the likely violence that could take place if #TheResistance focuses efforts on the event itself, a good starting point will be to stage a non-violent sit-in at the NPS office on Bush St. in the city.
Show the Regional Director, Laura Joss, that white supremacists and Nazis are not welcome in SF. The NPS will have no “business-as-usual” until they too condemn these white extremist terrorist groups.

Friday, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, Fun NOT Fascism 2: Notify Park Goers
Crissy Field Great Lawn
The National Park Service is obligated to provide permits for events under the First Amendment, which is why a group associated with white nationalists were able to secure a permit to hold a rally at Crissy Field. In light of the recent terrorist attack on peaceful protesters in Charlottesville by a white supremacist at a white nationalist rally, it is evident that the rally planned in San Francisco is a clear threat to public safety. One of the event speakers is convicted violent felon Kyle Chapman, better known as Based Stickman to his alt-Reich minions.
We discovered that many people using the park had no idea this event was coming to their park. We will gather Friday at the great lawn behind Sports Basement to educate recreationalists about how they can urge the NPS to cancel the event permit out of concern for the safety of our citizens

Friday, 6:00pm – 7:00pm, Friday Night Faith Vigil: Stand Against White Supremacy
16th Street Mission BART Station
2000 Mission St.
Join us at a Faith Vigil to denounce the racism on blatant display in Charlottesville last weekend and the hatred that is coming to our own backyard in 10 days, with white supremacist groups planning a similar rally at Crissy Field. On Friday evening, interfaith voices will lead us in prayerful and powerful resitance against white supremacy, and call out Governor Brown for enabling mass deportation of immigrants through his attempts to amend SB 54 Statewide Sanctuary Bill. This event is jointly sponsored by the San Francisco Catholic Archdiocese Office of Human Life and Dignity, Mission Night Walks, and Faith in Action Bay Area.
