Olympia Antifascists Fight Back Against Proud Boys

Hundreds of antifascists at the Washington State Capital, Olympia, gathered to counterprotest against the Proud Boys holding a Stop The Steal rally there. Intense hand-to-hand clashes occurred, with fistfights breaking out when the two sides came in contact as well as the use of pepper spray and other repellant gases.

Olympia police arrested a Proud Boy member for aiming his gun at antifascists, the latter who were then subject to flashbang grenades and crowd control munitions. A young black antifascist was then shot by a Proud Boy point-blank in the abdomen, who was later arrested and hogtied by Washington State Troopers.
