"ALT-RIGHT ISN'T ALRIGHT" MARCH- VENICE, CA

AUGUST 20, 2017

This march was intended to be a counter-protest against a "free speech" rally, organized by Trump supporter Jack Posobiec, but was canceled after the violence and murder of Heather Heyer that occurred during an "alt-right" gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017. The march started at the Venice boardwalk, continued on to the Google headquarters and ended at HBO offices in Santa Monica. Once at HBO, the marchers also protested against a developing series called "The Confederacy", that would depict an alternate reality, if the south had actually seceded from the US and where slavery was still legal in modern times. I documented my personal experience as a marcher and what I witnessed around me from Google to HBO.
