PUBLIC STATEMENT: Indivisible Gainesville denounces, in no uncertain terms, all actions and speech by white supremacists—everywhere.
Indivisible Gainesville denounces, in no uncertain terms, all actions and speech by white supremacists—everywhere. The violent actions of the white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia yesterday are horrifying and reprehensible. We speak unequivocally when we say that hate has no place in our country. Our hearts are with yesterday’s victims and our utmost gratitude is with those members of the resistance who came out to show that America will not stand for hate.
As many of you have heard, known Neo-Nazi and instigator Richard Spencer is attempting to reserve the University of Florida Phillips Center on September 12th. In the coming weeks, Indivisible Gainesville will coordinate with other local progressive groups to devise a strategy that will allow us to stand together against the hateful, violent rhetoric that Spencer espouses and represents.
We will not let any act of hate pass unmentioned. Our movement is stronger when everyone is represented. We cannot allow anyone to call for the revoking of another’s rights—and we cannot allow hate to spread.
Indivisible Gainesville urges all of our members to call Representative Yoho and State Senator Perry and urge them to take a public stand against Richard Spencer speaking in our city.
We stand with you.
~The Indivisible Gainesville Team
