Rally against Islamic law in Atlanta

Sveva Terracina | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:08

It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the clash between protesters and counter-protesters in Seattle, and the violence appeared to subside relatively quickly.

Minnesota State Police made seven arrests as fights broke out during demonstrations at the state Capitol in St. Paul.

But the counter-protesters say if the opponents of Shariah law are truly concerned about religious intolerance, they need look no further than the mirror.

The "March Against Sharia" is aimed at opposing what ACT for American perceives as the spread of Islamic law in the United States.

Saturday was the largest protests against Islam it has ever put on.

State Sen. Michael Williams, a Republican candidate for governor, spoke to the rally, according to his spokesman, Seth Weathers. "We're anti-Shariah. We're anti-radicals", the Upland woman said.

Leaders of the region's Islamic community held a counter rally several miles away from the Anti-Sharia demonstration, explained Fauzia Rizvi, General Secretary of the Islamic Society of Corona-Norco.


In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, two people were arrested - one for disorderly conduct and a second for striking a state police horse, said Troy Thompson of Capitol Police. Scholars and others say the protesters are stoking unfounded fears and promoting a distorted and prejudiced view of the religion.

"(I came) to show that female mutilation, honor killings and wife beatings are barbaric and should not be allowed in this country, which is what Sharia law would do", she said. "I think the stand here is Sharia law is not compatible with the constitution and we believe in many places it's starting to creep in", anti-Sharia activist Donald James said. Giant letters spelling out "Trump" loomed on the high-rise over the more than 100 protesters. By 4 p.m., many people from both groups had left the area and only a few remained. Some wore red hats with Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

Several homeless people, many of whom live in the neighborhood where the rally was held, cheered as the demonstrators marched by chanting, "Muslims Are Welcome here, no hate no fear" and "When Muslim rights are under attack, what do we do?"

Seattle was one of the cities where a counter-march was planned. A man collapsed under the piercing midday sun while watching a speech at the anti-Shariah ACT for America rally.

The organization ACT for America staged rallies in these locations to demonstrate against what it described as the threat of extremist interpretations of Islamic law infecting American democracy.

Roughly two hundred demonstrators gathered peacefully for a rally in a Seattle park and later marched toward Seattle City Hall, where they significantly outnumbered those gathered for an anti-Sharia law rally.
