On Sept. 3, hundreds of community members came out to defend the murals at Chicano Park in San Diego from white supremacists and fascists.

In the atmosphere of unmuffled racism unleashed by the Trump campaign and presidency, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups felt emboldened by the Trump presidency to come out of the shadows and express their racist views. One such group decided to come to Chicano Park and launch a campaign to remove the famous murals.
