A wide range of counter protests, vigils and marches are planned across the Bay Area this weekend, as far-right groups stage rallies at San Francisco’s Crissy Field on Saturday, and Berkeley’s Civic Center Park on Sunday. Concerns about violence led mayors of both cities to urge community members to stay away. We’ll check in with activists about their counter-protest plans, and we want to hear from you. If you’re going to a demonstration -- or avoiding all of them -- tell us why.
