Far-Right Sacramento Rally Draws Small Crowd

SACRAMENTO, CA – State police are mobilized in and around the California State Capitol building, in anticipation of violence following the 2016 mass casualty incident at a similar rally, which left ten people injured, many with stab wounds from far right attacks.

The Golden State Skinheads (a white supremacist gang with a long history of violence, connected to other far right groups) were expected to attend but have not yet made a showing.

A group of Proud Boys have made their presence known at the event. The Proud Boys are a far right street gang fronting as a fraternal order, which often associates with other gangs. See our 2018 coverage for a close look at the Missouri Proud Boys and their associations with other far right groups.
