Report back on recent community mobilization against threats of violence from the Idaho Liberty Dogs, a far-Right group in so-called Boise, Idaho. For background information, go here.
After a week filled with cops stealing survival items, being stink bombed, and facing multiple threats of violence from local fascists – folks experiencing houselessness and Boise Mutual Aid (BMA) volunteers were heavily relieved to see community show up.
Supporters filled the protest area to attend the community potluck bringing all kinds of food, water, and most importantly a genuine and concrete show of solidarity. Idaho liberty Dogs (ILD, a local fascist group that acted violently in the past towards protesters at black liberation demonstrations) showed up as well, bringing with them American flags, weapons, and a misinformed entitlement to uphold colonial traditions on land stolen by their forefathers. The ILD attendees numbered far less than folks who showed up to support those who are experiencing lack of access to resources and housing.
