ANTIFA “marks” and attacks CFACT students but fails to stop Lauren Southern talk at U of Minnesota

Lauren Southern talks to a packed room about free speech.

Multiple CFACT students were “marked” and assaulted by masked ANTIFA protesters outside a talk given by Lauren Southern, a conservative and libertarian Canadian political commentator, author, journalist, and Youtube sensation. Southern was hosted by the CFACT club at the University of Minnesota to discuss the evils of socialism and the importance of protecting free speech.

“The protesters started peacefully enough,” remarked Adam Bowen, a junior. “They even had a 4 piece marching band that was actually really good.”

Masked protesters waited, however, until some of the police presence had died down after the talk by Southern concluded. They then proceeded to mark and ambush departing CFACT event organizers. Nathan Amundson and Mitch Bendis,responsible for live streaming the event, were ambushed by a half dozen masked ANTIFA members as they left the venue loaded down with a large and expensive video camera and a box of event supplies.

“Things got ugly after the event,” said CFACT adviser Bill Gilles. “The police were doing a great job of protecting the area around Anderson Hall, but masked ANTIFA members on bikes were tagging event attendees then bringing in large groups of masked ANTIFA to harass and assault people as they walked away from the hall.”

The masked protesters blocked the students’ way and started taunting Nathan and Mitch.  When the CFACT students tried to go around the masked protesters, they were rushed, and a protester attempted to grab and smash the camera. Nathan was pushed to the ground and was punched by one of the protesters.  Since the masked protesters couldn’t reach Mitch, they spit on him and stole CFACT’s banner out of the box of supplies.
“We were sitting ducks,” explained Mitch Henders. “Soon we had a group of at least six protesters following us, filming and harassing us. I elected not to feed the trolls and continue minding my own business. Then, I felt a big gob of spit hit the back of my head. One of them spit on me. Before I could comprehend what happened, they shoved me and I nearly fell…I was completely overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to do. Luckily, my friend called the police and that scared them off.”
