From NBC:

Two different protests and rallies were planned for the evening. One group of protesters were calling for police reform while the other group was showing support for police.

The self-proclaimed group “Denver Communists” planned to hold a BLM_Antifa Soup Drive at 1:30 p.m. The “Patriot Muster” group said they would be having a peaceful rally around 2 p.m. Both said they’d take place at Civic Center Park.

According to our sister station in Denver, there was a concern for violence following fights that broke out when two opposing groups crossed paths over the summer.
