Defend the Muslim Community! Anti-Fascist Action at George R. Brown Convention Center!

September 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Texas Patriot Network and other white supremacists will protest against the Islamic Society of North America Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida De Las Americas, on Saturday, September 1. A large, militant counter-demonstration against the fascists will be held next to the Convention Center, beginning at 10 am. We support our Muslim brothers’ and sisters’ right to hold their convention, to exercise religious freedom, and to live as they wish without fear of violence, harassment, or intimidation.

Our counter-demonstration will have music, chanting, speakers, and more, and we will drown out the racism and religious bigotry of TPN, Three-Percenters, and other Far Right groups. This call for action is being issued by Houston Socialist Movement, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Refuse Fascism, Socialist Alternative, Young Communist League, and other groups (list in formation). Another call for action has been issued by our friends in the Socialist Rifle Association and other groups. All of us will be working together on September 1 to defend the Muslim community and drive the fascists off the streets of Houston.

Please plan to join us on September 1. If you would like to get involved or would like more information, please send us a message.
