‘Stop the Fascist Power Grab’ rally held in Pasco
PASCO, Wash. — Dozens of people gathered in Pasco on Sunday for a “Stop the Fascist Power Grab” rally to speak out against actions in Washington D.C. earlier this week.
Demonstrators held signs along 20th St. near Court St. in Pasco from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The rally was organized by the Community and Labor Against Fascism coalition of eastern Oregon and Washington.
An organizer told KAPP-KVEW they were there to bring awareness to the community.
“We need to organize ourselves as a community to prevent the rise of fascism in our community and the United States,” said Jessica, an organizer of the rally.
The crowd received a mixed reaction from cars driving by.
Some of the signs read “United Against Fascism,” “Make Our Community Fascist Free,” and “Eat The Rich.”
