When #whitenationalists and #neoNazis wanted to march in #Charlottesville again, the #Virginia city said no.
According to denial letters obtained by The Daily Progress, Charlottesville denied permits for five organizers, including counterprotesters, who wanted to organize events on Aug. 11 and 12, 2018.
The letters said that such events would “present a #danger to #publicsafety” and “cannot be accommodated within a reasonable allocation of city funds and/or police resources.” “There is no person or legal entity willing to accept responsibility for the group’s adherence” to the city laws, the manager, Maurice Jones, wrote.
#JasonKessler, who organized the “#UnitetheRight” march in August that led to tragedy, took to Twitter to promise to sue the “Communist government of Charlottesville” sometime “early next year.” Kessler said in a video posted on Monday that he and his supporters were the victims, blaming counterprotesters for the violence that broke out in August. This despite the fact that it was a white nationalist who drove a car into the crowd.
Kessler also urged his followers to march anyway, even without a permit, but insisted that there should not be any violence at the event, to “prove a point.” In his application for a permit, Kessler said that the city only needed to keep the sides separate to allow the protests to happen, but Jones wrote in his denial letter that the city “does not have the ability to determine or sort individuals according to what ‘side’ they are on.” #foodforthought#rbg#problack#panafrican#blackisbeautiful#blackwomenrock#blackmenrock#blackgirlsrock#blackboyjoy#blackexcellence
Today #Mastodon broke the 1 million user mark! I took #Twitter off my phone last month. Their decision to “verify” #whitesupremacist#JasonKessler was the last straw. Please help us build a better network... and come connect with me, my handle is @firstname.lastname@example.org !
Twitter baru-baru ini memperoleh masalah setelah memberikan tanda centang biru untuk tokoh supremasi kulit putih Jason Kessler.
Perubahan ini dilakukan beberapa hari lalu. Mereka sudah mulai menghapus lencana verifikasi dari beberapa akun. Termasuk tanda verifikasi dari akun Jason Kessler dan para tokoh supremasi kulit putih. Semenjak itu, perusahaan itu menulis sebuah panduan verifikasi baru. “Twitter memiliki hak untuk menghapus verifikasi kapan pun tanpa pemberitahuaan.alasan penghapusan bisa terkait perilaku di dalam dan luar Twitter,” tulis sosial media itu.
Beberapa perilaku di dunia nyata yang mengancam status verifikasi di antaranya adalah melecehkan orang lain, serta kebencian atau kekerasan terhadap orang lain berdasarkan suku, agama, gender dan orientasi seksual.
