Protest against pedophiles in sci-fi held outside Worldcon

News

Opposing rallies held outside of the San Jose Convention Center kept police on their toes Saturday afternoon. 

Sci-Fi fans, writers, and artists are all in town for Worldcon.

The event also brought out a group called Predators Out Now, who were protesting pedophiles in sci-fi. 

According to their Facebook event page, the group believes, there’s been an epidemic within the sci-fi community, abusing children and covering it up. 

Demonstrators declined to speak with KRON4’s Gabe Slate. 

Another group named, Hate Not Welcome in San Jose, showed up for a counter-protest. They believe the other group was part of the alt-right, pro-Trump, anti-immigrant movement. Protestors wanted to make it clear that hate was not allowed in San Jose.
