Patriot Prayer Rally Cancelled

UPDATE: Patriot Prayer Rally Cancelled

Patriot Prayer Rally SF

August 25, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Organizers of Patriot Prayer Rally SF official statement on cancellation of SF event at Crissy Field, Saturday, August 26, 2017

This letter is to inform the media, citizens, Nancy Pelosi, and Mayor Edwin Lee that the Freedom Rally scheduled at Crissy Field Saturday, August 26th, 2017 from 2pm-5pm, has been canceled by Patriot Prayer and the event organizers.

Although our rally was a peaceful event, we have concerns over the safety of people who wanted to attend. The security plan proposed by the Park Service and San Francisco PD fails to provide safety for people attending.

Their plan creates a situation where participants of the rally, and their opposition (Antifa/BAMN/BLM), will be forced to intermingle. We see this is an extreme safety issue. More details on this will be provided at our press conference held at the Alamo Park in San Francisco Saturday, August 26, 2017, starting at 2pm.

All media outlets are requested at the park for more details.

Regards,
Patriot Prayer & Event Organizers

From the local CBS affiliate:

“I’m talking about racists, people who are white supremacists, white nationalists,” said SF Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. “People who don’t agree that we should be a sanctuary city, people who do not agree with inclusiveness.”

Supervisor Mark Farrell went so far Wednesday to issue a statement calling the Crissy Field demonstrators Nazis.
