A rally held by white supremacists outside of the California capitol building in Sacramento ended with violence Sunday as six people were stabbed during clashes between Neo-Nazis and counter protesters, authorities say.
The event was held by the Traditionalist Worker Party, according to a Facebook post advertising the rally.
“Our Party will be marching to reclaim our communities, one street at a time. Any comrades on the West Coast join together and take a stand for Faith, Family and Folk,” the group said.
They were met by counter protesters from Antifa Sacramento, who said they were planning to shut down the rally.
“Sacramento is the site of a sort of Nazi “mega-rally” that is bringing together disparate elements of the extreme right in an attempt to flex the muscles of organized white supremacy,” Antifa said. “Anti-Fascist Action Sacramento has taken on this challenge and is rallying the community to show the insurrectionary white supremacists that Sacramento is not going to tolerate their swastikas and threats of violence.”
It is not clear who was stabbed. Some of the victims were hospitalized with critical injuries, the Sacramento Fire Department said.
