Discontent City is organizing what it’s calling an emergency rally to defend tent city.
The rally, set for Sunday, Aug. 19, is in response to “threats” posted Friday on a Soldiers of Odin Vancouver Island Facebook page that has since been removed, according to a press release from Alliance Against Displacement and Discontent City.
“We encourage supporters to join us, and given the huge turnout of our counter-rally on Aug. 5, we’re confident that we can once again significantly outnumber the fascists and intimidate them into retreat,” notes the press release.
The rally is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
The Soldiers of Odin Vancouver Island, Nanaimo RCMP and Island District RCMP could not be reached for comment.
