Rafael Kadaris, of Revolution Books, Berkeley, on the Fascist Threats to Attack the Bookstore
From Revolution Books, Berkeley:
In the last couple years, a bunch of vile know-nothing pro-Trump fascists have repeatedly attacked Revolution Books and even threatened to burn it down! Once again they’re marching on Revolution Books.
The call for their “No to Marxism” protest says, “Revolution Books is a communist anti-American store.” Guilty as charged!
Rafael Kadaris will talk about the threats and the response of Revolution Books and others to these fascists.

We'll discuss the impacts and the roots of these policies with Talila A. Lewis, a community lawyer and consultant.
