Because "it is Trump’s hometown and business headquarters," antifa group IGD is organizing a riot in New York on May 1st. IGD stands for "It's Going Down." Here is where and when:
"Hoods4Justice" will be having a meet-and-greet at Grand Central Terminal at 9am.
At 12:30 pm, the "Brandworkers" will be hosting the 6th Annual Immigrant Worker Justice Tour in Washington Square Park. Looks like you might need to pack a lunch along with your rioting gear.
At 3:30 pm, the "Anti-Fascist Bloc March" will be taking place in Union Square.
And at 7 pm, the "Noise Demo" will commence in Columbus Park.
The itinerary explains that "the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council (MACC) calls on comrades in the New York City area to join us and march in solidarity with immigrants and workers this May Day." And further, "This year’s march is unpermitted [sic]."
Looks like quite a productive day they've got planned out. They may run into a few glitches considering the NYPD, MTA Police, Port Authority and FBI are now aware of their plans. It might be a good idea to pre-arrange bail money and legal representation. IGD did not specify in their invite if they could assist in these matters.
The group is, however, asking for donations to "help us grow and expand!"
Comments on http://8ch.net/pol/res/9799674.html - the board that discovered the invite - were curiously encouraging:
"Nice. NYPD will get to have fun kicking their teeth in. I'll need to get some popcorn."
"Good, I hope they do something stupid and get killed by cops, and then set the normies off and get declared a terrorist org like they should be. Then its open season."
The antifa group's purpose of the riot is to "support of the communities who are most vulnerable to attacks." …OK.
