Rebel News's Adam Soos was on the scene at Calgary City Hall on Saturday, June 24, where a group of protesters, many of them Muslim, demonstrated against the pro-LGBT indoctrination of children in public schools.
The protest was organized by Mahmoud Mourra, who told the Western Standard that he pulled his children out of school when the Alberta government implemented gay-straight alliances in schools in 2016. "Now that his son has to go to high school, he said he is back to the beginning," the outlet reported.
Moura added that he “needs to protect my kids which are underage to have the freedom of choice to decide what they want to decide or do whatever they want to do when they’re eligible to make the right decision.” He believes students are being brainwashed with gender ideology.
This was the second such event, with approximately 300 people gathering on June 16 to protest the same issue. Chants such as “let kids be kids” and “leave our kids alone” could be heard from the crowd.
Tension seemed higher at the more recent protest, with several arguments erupting between the protesters and a group of counter-demonstrators nearby. The Western Standard estimated the anti-LGBT agenda group at around 250 people and about one-third Muslim. According to the outlet, there were around 60 counter-protesters.
Numerous police officers were on the scene as the counter-protest swelled in numbers, with supporters outfitted in Pride-themed attire.
Some of the verbal altercations between protesters did escalate to pushing and shoving.
Both sides also began to rush into the nearby crosswalk when the light turned red to protest in front of the stopped cars.
