Violent Fights Take Place Between Trump Supporters and AntiFa Rioters

Berkeley, CA | 04/15/17

Reports of violence today in Berkeley and at other rallies are making the rounds online.

Reporters with a local news affiliate in the Bay Area suggested that police were not able to contain all of the chaos.

Apparently there was a speaking event scheduled to take place in Berkeley today as part of a “Patriot Rally.”

Before the event could begin, antifa rioters initiated violent attacks.

At some point a group of people who planned to attend the event confronted the rioters and began fighting back.

Some of the footage shows the two groups clashing and throwing trash bins at each other.

Riot police are said to have broken up some of the fights but were not present to stop others.
