White supremacists hold rally anyway after being denied permit on Stone Mountain in Georgia
Stone Mountain park officials say a group called the Three Percenters out of Alabama applied for a permit. It was denied because of violence surrounding past protests. No other group was given a permit.
But people still showed up on Saturday.
So far, no word on any arrests or injuries from the protest — however, there were some altercations caught on camera.

Police disperse demonstrators from Stone Mountain
Protesters and counterprotesters face off in the city of Stone Mountain after Stone Mountain Park was closed. Several far-right groups, including militias and white supremacists, were planning to rally Saturday at Stone Mountain, and a broad coalition of leftist anti-racist groups are organizing a counter-demonstration. Local authorities, who have been closely monitoring online chatter about the rally, are bracing for possible conflict. (Photo: Jenni Girtman for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Someone in the crowd set off a firework. Two counterprotesters report being sprayed with insect repellent, and possibly pepper spray, and a medic has been called for.
There is more at the link above including pictures. You can see from the pictures how the right wing militia racists are spraying people with chemicals. They are nasty people. They just want to hurt others and insist on their superiority. Hugs
