Thirteen people were arrested after the clash in Pearson Park, Anaheim, on Saturday.

Anti-fascist activists have raised more than US$25,000 to support anti-KKK protesters arrested after a rally in Anaheim, California turned violent.

Copwatch Santa Ana and the Los Angeles Anarchist Black Cross say that they begun the fundraising campaign when a group of anti-fascists were targeted by police after they mounted a counter-protest against the white supremacist group.

Several counter-protesters were injured when they were stabbed by Ku Klux Klan members.

“The anti-fascist comrades who got arrested are in urgent need of some real solidarity! That’s why we need to raise BIG MONEY for them. Your donations will go towards any medical or legal costs associated with their injuries and arrests from that day,” the groups wrote on their fundraiser page.
