The Beastie Boys are encouraging fans to take part in an anti-hate rally at Adam Yauch Park, the Brooklyn, N.Y., memorial park in honor of late group member Adam Yauch, on Sunday (Nov. 19). The park was defaced with graffiti of swastikas, as well as the words “Go Trump,” on Friday.
“Hate has no place in Brooklyn, NYC, or America. Join us on Sunday to stand against hate messages,” a message on the band’s Twitter account reads.
The rally will be led by New York senator Daniel Squadron, congresswoman Nydia Velazquez and city council members Stephen Levin and Brad Lander, and other members of the community. It is set to begin at 11:30 a.m. at the park, which is located on State St. between Columbia and Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights.
