FCSO: No Verified FL Sites In Rumored Nov. 4 Antifa Demonstrations

By on November 1, 2017 in WNDB News

Flagler County, FL – Investigators in Flagler County say there are no verified sites in the state of Florida for Antifa demonstrations rumored to be scheduled for Saturday, November 4.

There have been rumors that Antifa, a political movement of anti-fascist groups, is planning coordinated, non-violent demonstrations to be held on November 4 at locations across the country… rumors that spread to include Palm Coast. The Northeast Florida Fusion Center and the Flagler County Sheriff’s Domestic Homeland Security Section conducted research and concluded that there is no evidence to indicate a verified demonstration site in Flagler County or the state of Florida. Officials say the Flagler County Sheriff’s Domestic Homeland Security Section is working with other local and state agencies to continue monitoring the situation and will notify the community of any updates.

FCSO says a widely disseminated fake social media post from a Facebook page based in Kansas claimed that Palm Coast would be the site of an Antifa demonstration on November 4th, causing concern for some citizens. “We have seen the postings on social media and other outlets that suggest there will be protests in our county,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “We’ve taken appropriate measures to research those reports and have found that there is no known legitimate source for this claim. In any event, our agency is prepared and residents should continue their normal activities.”
