A pro-Trump rally in Berkeley on Saturday was met with counter-demonstrations, resulting in violent clashes and at least 20 arrests. Eleven people were injured and seven of those were taken to hospitals, according to police. John Sepulvado, host of KQED's "The California Report" covered the so-called “Patriots Day” demonstration and “Antifa” counter-protest. He joins us in the studio to talk about the events.

CORRECTION: Early in this episode we referred to the rally in Berkeley as being permitted. That is inaccurate. Identity Evropa, the white nationalist group, organized the rally but the Berkeley Police Department has confirmed that the event was not issued a permit.
