Anti-police activists continued their crusade against police on Saturday in a march that began at the University of Texas in Austin and moved downtown. Police met the Black Lives Matter-supporting march, and drove them off the streets.
Using footage pulled from Truthout reporter Candice Bernd, Andy Ngo described the march as an "antifa gathering" that occupied the streets of the Texas state capitol.
Activists chanted that the Austin police department "has got to go" as they left the campus area.
Once downtown, militant activists threatened bystanders. One man can be seen yelling through a megaphone that if people are standing on the side they are "part of the f***ing problem."
Tenants in the area had been warned by police that protest activity could result in armed activists taking up positions on the roofs of apartment buildings, and that these people should be reported to police.
The activists localized around the location where an armed militant was shot last weekend by a man he allegedly threatened with his weapon.
Protestors considered taking over the interstate highway, and the Statesman reported that police blocked off the area.
A video was posted showing protestors committed to keeping up their activity.
On Saturday night in Austin, a black man was displeased about being stopped by Black Lives Matters activists. He got out of his car and approached them saying "I got to go to work, I'm black, I got to go to work," he said. "I've got bills, I've got kids, get the f*** out of my way."
Austin is considered to be the most liberal city in Texas, so it should come as no surprise that it's also become a flashpoint for leftist activity in the state since anti-police protests kicked off in late May following the death of George Floyd.
