Tension in the US by the rise of the small utraderechistas does not cease and this Thursday in the state of Florida is expected a high-risk situation by the event in which one of the visible figures of reactionary extremism will participate, Richard Spencer , of 39 years and President of the Institute of National Politics, a propagandistic group of white nationalism. The governor of Florida, Republican Rick Scott, has declared the state of emergency.
Spencer will give a speech in the City of Gainesville (130,000 inhabitants, Central Florida) at a University of Florida headquarters. Its intervention is scheduled between two and a half and four in the local afternoon time. Your group has paid $10,500 for the use of a college campus facility. The University of Florida has repudiated the event but has not cancelled it in order not to incur, as explained in its directive, a violation of the right to freedom of expression.
The academic center has had to assume a half-million-dollar spending on security preparations to try to avoid clashes between Spencer's followers and anti-racist protesters. It is estimated that more than 500 will hear Spencer and more than 2,000 to Denostarlo.
Governor Scott, a very conservative politician but with this position is showing signs of right-wing extremism, said in his emergency statement: "We live in a country where we all have the right to express our opinion." That said, we uphold zero tolerance in the face of violence and public safety is our number one priority.
Spencer also planned to speak at the radical rally right on the 12th of August in Charlottesville City, Va. The event took place because in the Prolegomena, a camp battle was unleashed between protesters and white supremacistss carrying Nazi symbols and the Ku Klux Klan. Dozens of people were injured and one woman, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, died beaten by a radical's car that hit protesters on purpose.
