Kansas City police ordered the disarmament of armed antifa groups who marched in Washington Square Park this past Saturday.
Armed with semi-automatic rifles and ammunition, activists from the Kansas City Revolution Collective, Serve the People, and Progressive Youth Organization rallied within the park to the anti-Sharia group, ACT For America.
Dressed in black clothing and red balaclavas, the group carried red flags bearing the communist symbol.
The Kansas City Revolutionary Collective calls itself a “Marxist-Leninist-Maoist” collective that has posted calls for “self-preservation” against “far-right militias” whom they claim are supported by President Donald Trump.
According to the Kansas City Star, police ordered their disarmament and removal of ammunition from their weapons at the Saturday morning rally. The armed individuals complied, but several among them claimed that the disarmament violated their rights under the state’s open carry statutes. Members of the group reportedly said they planned to fight the order, but did not take any action at the park.
