This protest is in opposition to a public recruitment rally at Los Angeles City Hall held by the National Socialist Movement (NSM), who is an openly neo-Nazi organization.

  1. A suggestion: emphasize that the listing of these events/actions is meant to help readers gauge the state of the higher education movement/sociopolitical landscape. Otherwise, it seems as though you guys are endorsing questionable events – specifically, the neo-Nazi one listed first.

  2. Oh, my bad – I misread the event – it’s held in OPPOSITION to the Nazi event. I retract my previous comment!
