The far right-wing group Patriot Prayer hopes to stage a rally at San Francisco’s Crissy Field on August 26, an event that is expected to draw armed sympathizers and white supremacists. Fearing violence, state and city lawmakers have called on on the National Park Service to rescind the group’s permit. We discuss how San Francisco and other cities are preparing for rallies by far right wing and white nationalist groups, and how citizens, civil rights groups and counterprosters are planning to respond.
