Anti-racism protests in US call to arms for militia groups across political divide

The US presidential election is just six weeks away.

This summer of rage and anti-racist protest across the country isn’t just a rallying cry for marchers against police brutality and the Trump government. It’s been a call to arms for militia groups across the nation.

Some of those groups have already been parading in the streets of America’s city, fully armed – including on the far right, a group called the Three Percenters – and the country’s biggest black militia, the NFAC.

Krishnan Guru-Murthy has been meeting both groups, including an exclusive interview with the NFAC’s founder, Grandmaster Jay.
