In June 2016 Antifa and By Any Means Necessary led riots that occurred at Berkeley. 300 Antifa Nazis attacked 30 from a white Supremacist group with 15 people getting stabbed, two seriously. After a year long investigation the California State Police recommended charges against 101 rioters by the DA refused all but four of the recommendations, fearing the left would be too short handed for the next riot.
They did however agree to charge a leader of Antifa Yvonne Felarca, a.k.a. Yvette Felarca on charges of “inciting and participating in a riot and assault likely to cause great bodily injury.” Felarca is a school teacher in Berkeley and has lead several other riots including the one that attacked Milo.
At the time, Breitbart News reported:
Seven people were sent to the hospital with stab wounds, two with life-threatening injuries, on Sunday afternoon as Black Bloc anarchists attacked and fought with white supremacist groups outside the state Capitol in Sacramento.
Several other demonstrators who managed to avoid the hospital suffered bruises after the groups engaged in a chaotic melee.
The Black Bloc activists were part of a militant leftist “anti-fascist” group,”Antifa Sacramento.” The right-wing extremists were members of the Traditionalist Worker Party and the Golden State Skinheads, and were holding a permitted rally.
Members of “anti-fascist” groups like the ones who attacked protestors [sic] have also been been responsible for a number of attacks around the country, including attacks on Donald Trump supporters at recent rallies. Some of these attacks follow hyperbolic allegations by some on the left (and even some on the right, such as Glenn Beck) that Donald Trump is “Hitler.”
She was one of the organizers behind the riot against then-Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California Berkeley in February. She said at the time that she had “no regrets” about the violence that resulted on campus: “Milo Yiannopoulos is a fascist. He’s a white supremacist. He’s funded by Steve Bannon and Breitbart. He’s an accolade of Donald Trump. And he was on the UC Berkeley campus to try to recruit more fascists and to wage attacks on Muslim students, immigrant students, women and trans students.”
“The left has been far too timid for far too long,” she said.
