Rally against Islamic law in Atlanta

Rally against Islamic law in Atlanta

The rallies, which were organized by the national security organization ACT! for America, attracted strong support in cities such as Phoenix, Chicago, Austin, Atlanta, New York, Boston, and Seattle.

The rally began around 10 am and saw heated moments between Anti-Sharia law proponents and Anti-Trump counter protesters.

To be clear, there is no Sharia Law in Kansas City, nor is there any movement to implement it.

Liberals denounced the rallies as being "anti-Muslim", but ACT for America said that it is "proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with peaceful Western Muslims as well as peaceful Muslims worldwide", according to the Daily Mail.

"The participants chanted slogans, accusing" anti-Sharia" marchers of racism and Islamophobia.In Atlanta, Georgia, a small group of demonstrators gathered in Piedmont Park to protest against the Sharia.

The department said it was still reviewing how many people were arrested and what charges they might face, but at least some were expected to be booked for investigation of assault.

The right-wing advocacy group ACT for America planned the march at Mount Trashmore in concert with several dozen similar events held around the country on Saturday, according to reports.

In Seattle, protesters could be heard singing: "No hate, no fear, Muslims are welcome here", as footage showed the two groups involved in a physical altercation.

The Southern Poverty Law Center says Oath Keepers is "one of the largest radical antigovernment groups in the United States", organized around a "set of baseless conspiracy theories".

Saudi ally Bahrain demands Qatar distance itself from Iran
State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said Trump would rather that all sides worked out the dispute among themselves. Tillerson said the USA was asking Qatar to "be responsive to the concerns of its neighbors".


Protesters in Indianapolis were on Washington Street, and organizers say the march is about fighting for human rights, rather than against Muslims. "America as we all know is a country of immigrants, its built on diversity".

Marches against Islamic law are scheduled in more than two dozen cities across the United States.

The atmosphere was tense but the protest went off with no violence and only one arrest, police said.

Protesters shouted at each other from opposite sides of the street while police stood in between to keep the peace.

In Syracuse, N.Y., marchers turned out to support President Donald Trump, and they were met by other demonstrators who are calling the rallies anti-Muslim bigotry.

"The Constitution is the law of the land", he said. The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in May that the number of anti-Muslim incidents surged 57 percent previous year compared with 2015.

After scuffles broke out between the groups, State Troopers arrested seven people for disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process.

In St. Paul, the local Council of American-Islamic Relations chapter invited ACT protestors to tour a mosque and have a dinner to promote an interfaith dialogue.
