Protests Against “Proud Boy” Dustin Casler Continue

Supporters inform us that Proud Boy Dustin Casler’s employment by the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center Hotel on the UT Austin campus has led to continued protests and other actions. Despite being notified by multiple organizations the company has failed to take appropriate actions to protect their guests, workers, and students.

Antifascists marched on the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center as they chanted, “Fire Dustin Casler!”

Antifascists marched on the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center Hotel with signs informing guests, employees, and students of the threat posed by the Proud Boys, a fascist gang disguised as a fraternity. Proud Boys have organized violence in New York, Portland, and Charlottesville. Jason Kessler, who organized the deadly rally in Virginia, was at the time a Proud Boy.

Informational flyers alerting visitors and employees about Casler’s activities were also distributed, according to sources. In addition to attending Proud Boys events in Austin, Dustin Casler was a moderator on the (now discontinued) official Proud Boys web forum, using his own name.

The antifascists informed the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center that Dustin Casler’s employment will not be swept under the rug and that actions will continue until a public announcement is made of his termination.

They further suggest that all Austinites and antifascists abroad call (512) 404-1900 and demand Casler’s removal as a matter of public safety.
