Anti-Propaganda Protesters Rally Outside Breitbart HQ
Protesters have taken to the streets outside the offices of
Pravda Breitbart News Sunday afternoon to stand against the media company's propaganda for the Trump administration.
"Trump's cheering squadron of professional propagandists at Breitbart have kept their location secret -- until now: 11999 San Vicente. Demand transparency, protest propaganda!" the event's Facebook page notes. "This protest is to make our voices heard, not to silence Breitbart’s. We believe in free speech, free press, and nonviolence, even when we disagree. We are inclusive: all genders, races, ethnicities, religions, and political persuasions are welcome."
The protesters were met by counter-protesters who defended the
paper of record for the Alt-Right right-leaning news site. Estimated attendance was less than 100 people.
