The Southwest Organizing Project, a social rights organization in Albuquerque, organized a protest outside the Donald Trump rally last month in Albuquerque. That protest got out of hand, despite the efforts of SWOP to calm those present. According to Javier Benavides, SWOP Executive Director, it wasn’t until police began aggressively trying to disperse the group, that the masses became angry.
Regardless, the organization is now receiving threats, even death threats. I spoke Benavides this morning to hear about the fallout.
