Emily Rose Marshall

From ency.pub

Emily Rose Marshall (around 1997)[1] is a Southern Californian who is a member of the anarchist-"anti-fascist" Oak Roots collective.[2][1][3] Emily regards herself as an activist.[3] She weighs 95 pounds, has dreadlocks, is 5 feet 1 inch tall and uses the alias Louis Rosealma.[1][3]

28 August 2016 Go Topless march in Venus

On 28 August 2016, Emily participated in the Go Topless march in Venice, California. She was topless except for something covering her nipples with anarchist circle-As on them and was holding a sign saying "MY BODY IS NOT A CRIME". There both males and females in the march, whose purpose was to call for "topless equality".[4]

21 January 2017 Women's March in LA

On 21 January 2017, Emily participated in the Women's March in Los Angeles.[5] She was topless again that day except for bandages on her nipples with anarchist circle-As on them and was accompanied by a young man named Tony. She was protesting because she could go to jail and be fined if she took off the bandages. When asked why she would go to jail, she said: "Because misogyny and America hates women".[6] She was also protesting because she thinks woman aren't paid equally and because she believes not all women "have the rights to their reproductive organs".[7]

15 April 2017 Patriots Day rally in Berkeley

Emily and her boyfriend traveled to Berkeley to protest against the alt-Right's 15 April 2017[1] Patriots Day event taking place there, which was attended by Nathan Damigo's Identity Evropa and the Proud Boys, among others.[3] "It was like a six hour ride" to Berkeley, she says.[8]

Emily helped "crank up the pre-demonstration rhetoric"[3] in a Facebook post she wrote: "Headed to Berkeley to disrupt the neo Nazi/ white Supremacist jerk circle today. Nervous af but determined to bring back 100 nazi scalps."[9] After a screenshot[9] of this made the rounds, she tried to downplay this by saying: "I guess no [one] has seen Quentin Tarantino movies. I thought that was going to be obvious, but I guess not."[3]

Reporter Tim Pool managed to interview her at one point that day and said:

So during the fighting, there was about 7 M-80s thrown into the crowd from the antifa side. One of them landed next to an old woman who fell down trying to get away from it. I'm wondering if you or ... You know, I know you don't speak for the entire group, but do you condemn the throwing of, you know, fireworks at people?[10]

She responded:

The revolution isn’t f***in' easy. I mean I got kneed in the face, pepper-sprayed in the eye, and some guy tried hitting my head against a rock and he was wearing a f***ing Make America Great Again hat... These people are coming in and they're trying to take away our rights ... and we're here to tell them, "No that's not f***ing okay" ... and we're telling them, "No, you're not f***ing welcome here."[11]

Emily was portrayed as a helpless victim by the mainstream media[3][1] when a video that showed Nathan punched her after she threatened alt-Rightists with a bottle went viral.[12] The video has to be slowed down for one to see she is swinging a bottle.[12] Nathan punched her again when she came charging at them and he saw it was the same person who had the bottle one moment before.[13] Her fist was on his throat the moment he punched her the second time.[14] Video footage and a photo taken by Stephen Lam of Reuters both show she was swinging a bottle the moment Nathan acted in self-defence and in defence of others.[15][12] She later lied to snopes.com, saying that she didn't have a bottle in her hand and that the photo was doctored. A comparison between the video footage and the picture taken by Stephen Lam shows it is "highly unlikely that they were faked", writes Dan Evon of snopes.com.[15] Emily told CBS San Francisco that she was on the sidelines taking pictures and "just standing there", another lie.[16] She says she "was just trying to get out of where" she was before Nathan punched her.[17] This is at least her third lie, she charged toward them before Nathan punched her the second time, and the first time he punched her she was swinging a bottle.[13]
