Adam Yauch Park graffitied w/ swastikas & “Go Trump”; response rally happening

Adam Yauch Swastika

Perhaps you’ve noticed a rise in racist graffiti since the election of a KKK-endorsed president. Here’s another, particularly disgusting one. Adam Yauch Park, named for the late Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch (aka MCA), was graffitied with swastikas and the phrase “Go Trump.” The Beastie Boys were of course all Jewish, so the location of this graffiti does not seem coincidental. New York City Council member Brad Lander tweeted the following:

UPDATE: Kathleen Hanna revealed on Twitter that there will be a rally at the park on Sunday (11/20) at 11:30 AM, organized by State Senator Daniel Squadron, Congresswoman Nydia Velásquez, other local politicians and more, to “stand up against hate.”
