This is an excellent report back from folks who post at Its Going Down.  Elm City Report Back: Keeping the Green Clean. The article opens this way: Saturday, July 8th was a successful day for the U.S antifascist movement. In Charlottesville, VA, the KKK was run out of town. Here in New Haven, a group of fascist and white supremacists attempted to hold a rally on the Green downtown. Members of the nationalist, misogynist Proud Boys, who double as the Connecticut Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights or FOAK chapter, American Guard and neo-Nazi group Identity Evropa showed up in an attempt to “resist socialism” i.e. spread hate around the city. They even had scheduled pseudo-celebrity alt-right Proud Boy Augustus Invictus to speak at the rally.

In preparation, various east coast antifascist crews, local activists from several organizations, and residents from neighborhoods around the Elm City showed the fuck up and shut them the fuck down. A crowd of over 200 marched from one corner of the Green (a large park in the middle of the city) to the other, holding a banner that read “Welcome to Hell” as a show of solidarity with Hamburg and chanting “Run Nazis Run.”
