Not so with the comrade's, from the Socialist Party of Michigan, designation of this rally.  A google of "Rally against Black gang terrorism" led to the rally organizer's, a 'talk radio' scholck jock, website:  http://www.halturnershow.com/RallyAgainstBlackGangTerrorism.html

The Socialist Party of Michigan (SPMI) had a sizeable contingent at
this anti-fascist demonstration in Kalamazoo yesterday.

An SPMI member, Emily,  was arrested at the end of the demonstration.
Emily was bailed out of jail yesterday evening and given the dubious
of "interfering." The SPMI, apparently, has been unable to get a response
from police on what exactly she was "interfering" with.

She along with another person who was arrested minutes
beforehand have an arraignment scheduled for Friday
August 17th at 8:30AM at  Kalamazoo.

A picture of Emily being arrested is available at:

a video from the rally that ends with footage of
Emily's arrest at: http://tinyurl.com/2axb87
