Left and alt-right protesters gather in Berkeley for demonstrations

Downtown Berkeley on Sunday became, once again, the site of a conflict between alt-right protesters and counter-protesters, defying the hopes of city officials for a mellow day.

For most of the afternoon, flocks of protesters surged along Berkeley’s central streets, defying police officers’ attempts to corral them. Meanwhile, in Civic Center Park, a small group of “anti-Marxists” sparred with those who came out to denounce them as white supremacists.

The afternoon ended with more than a dozen arrests, several small fires being set and a lot of screaming and slogan chanting — but by evening, the commotion was over.
