that the noontime City Hall rally planned by the nascent group "Warriors on the Waterfront
" came as a surprise to even those listed as part of the organization's steering committee.
The surprise was two-fold: Not only were groups taken aback there was a rally going on, they were unaware that they'd been drafted to be part of this organization.
"I just gotta say, I have no idea what this group is or how our name came to be used in affiliation with them," Josh Arce, the executive director of the Brightline Defense Project, told SF Weekly Tuesday. "I guess we'll find out at some point."
Arce's nonprofit was erroneously listed as "Brightline Defense Group" on Warriors on the Waterfront's steering committee page, and was also miscategorized as a labor union. The Carpenters' Local 22 -- which actually is a labor union -- was also listed on the page, though no one there knew anything about a rally or the organization throwing it.
But, in a way, that problem has been solved.
