Groups of Antifa and Black Lives Matter agitators were shut down and arrested by state and local officials on Saturday after threatening to deploy sniper teams and gun trucks into downtown Austin, Texas, to establish a CHAZ-like autonomous zone in the area.
Over 100 police officers, some in riot gear, or riding horses and bicycles, were deployed in Texas’ capital city in a bid to minimize the far-left rioting and vandalism that was planned as part of an anti-police march.
Footage from the ground, including exclusive Infowars coverage, shows the overwhelming response by the police, who split the protesting Antifa/BLM group and established control over the downtown streets.
According to local news, about 20 people were arrested or detained before midnight.
The effective response by law enforcement left the far-left groups splintered and demoralized.
The confrontations died down by 1:30AM once police had completely secured the area.
As Infowars first reported, the massive police presence was prompted by internal intelligence memos outlining Antifa’s plans to deploy sniper teams on rooftops, gun trucks to patrol the streets, and explosives to use against the Austin Police Department building.
