On February 2, 2018 Charlie Kirk from Turning Point USA spoke at Colorado State University. Anti-fascists from all over the state showed up to protest TPUSA's message of economic racism. As cops gave dispersal orders to antifascist protesters near the end of the event several members of the Traditional Workers Party arrived shouting chants of "Blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us." These neo-Nazis were wearing armor and were equipped with shields and metal flashlights. In the process of escorting them from campus an antifascist comrade was assaulted by a TWP Nazi, and sustained an injury to the head after being hit with a metal flashlight. The injury required an ER visit and several stitches. The antifascist comrade was then hit with a $2,400 hospital bill for the care they received. Their insurance company covered some of the expenses, but they are still left with $1,400. We are raising funds to help this comrade pay these bills and continue with their antifascist work.
Any money raised in excess of the goal will be donated to Denver Homeless Out Loud.
