What appeared to be a group of Anti fascists, who held Antifa flag, marched through Williamsburg Brooklyn this weekend (August 15) for two hours in solidarity with Stone Mountain protests in Georgia.
A group of about 100 people, smaller later, marched through Greenpoint and then Williamsburg chanting . After they turned towards Bedford Avenue, multiple businesses windows were smashed and walls tagged with messages such as “Murder Bezos” and “FTP”. Stores that got hit were Apple, Whole Foods, Compass, HSBC, Nest Seekers and other corporate buildings. There were no arrests reported at that time.
In Stone Mountain, Georgia , Right-wing groups led by Confederate States III%, applied for a permit to hold a rally in Stone Mountain Park, where there’s a giant sculpture of Confederate leaders. The event was planned as a response to a march in the park by a Black militia group. The permit was denied, citing a violent clash between groups in April 2016
AP stated: Although the park has historically been a gathering spot for white supremacists, the adjoining city of Stone Mountain has a majority-Black population today.
Authorities said they responded to a 911 call around 10:20 p.m. at the Apple Store on Bedford Avenue, they discovered a broken glass window with the writing “FTP” spray-painted on the glass.
Male and female suspects, both described as having a light complexion and last seen wearing dark-colored clothing are wanted in connection with the incident.
Later police also responded to a 9-1-1 call on North 10th Street at about 11:45 p.m. , they found a large glass storefront window broken with a message painted across the door.
There were no descriptions of any suspects in the second incident
