Dueling Armed Militias Congregate in Louisville

Dueling armed militias descended on Louisville, Kentucky on July 25, as authorities closed streets in the city’s downtown to accommodate the weapon-toting protesters.

This clip, taken from a livestream, shows armed white militia members in downtown Louisville. According to press reports, members of far-right groups planned to make a show of force to counter the NFAC — an Atlanta-based black militia that was also expected to rally in the city.

Louisville has become a flashpoint in a summer of anti-racism protests nationwide. Locally, demonstrations have focused on the police killing of Breonna Taylor who was gunned down in her home during a raid in March. Credit: The Culture Creatorz via Storyful
