The slog downtown was slow but inspiring, with people walking in the open sunny street and sweating while they danced and chanted. Different spots on the march featured varying flavors. The front, where organizers tagged along with the truck and sound system, packed the energy of an Apollo Creed ring entrance. Antifa activists held down the middle: “GET UP, GET DOWN, ANTIFASCISTS RUN THIS TOWN”; “HEY HEY, HO HO, NAZI SCUM HAS GOT TO GO.” There were countless clumps of friends, as well as many families, though very few children around, as parents this reporter spoke with said they didn’t want to put their kids at risk of possible injury. In the whitest section, people chanted, “This little light of mine,” with some walking up to thank BPD Commissioner William Evans for his service as they walked past police headquarters.
