  hey IOPS! some random ass content for ya... this is a clip of some video i took in June 2017 at an anti-Sharia rally out front Seattle City Hall. counter protests were also planned and executed in much greater numbers, waving signs and creating intentional noise to drown out the anti-Sharia speakers. some related violent exchanges took place in a nearby area a couple hours after dispersal, which is not a part of this clip. none of the people in this video were official speakers. at least…

Just throwing this up to see what the situation is presently with the US chapter. Understandable not exactly priority number one, but the present US page seems to be a bit behind and just a thought, I would be happy to takeover the admin status and maybe refresh it a little bit.
