Progressive activists and lawyers are criticizing the Berkeley Police Department in California over its decision to publish the identities of the 20 Antifa protesters arrested on Sunday at an anti-Marxism rally in Berkeley, California.The Berkeley Police Department announced Sunday on Twitter that they arrested 20 people at a “No to Marxism in Berkeley” rally, publishing the names, cities of residence, and photos of Antifa counterprotesters in separate tweets.
But some progressive lawyers and activists are criticizing the police department’s decision to publish the identities of the suspects on social media.Jay Kim, executive director of the Berkeley chapter of the progressive National Lawyers Guild, told the Guardian that the arrests unfairly targeted the left-wing Antifa protesters.“It really seemed to us like the Berkeley police department was there to … target the anti-fascist protesters,” said Kim
