Martin Gugino Is a Catholic Peace Activist, Not an “Antifa Provocateur,” Friends Say

Religion News Service’s Yonat Shimron writes that Martin Gugino, who was seriously injured by police in Buffalo during a protest, is a Catholic peace activist. President Donald Trump tweeted the “unfounded claim” that Gugino “could be an ANTIFA provocateur.” Shimron writes, “Friends of the retired computer scientist described Gugino as a devout Catholic and a graduate of Canisius High School, a private Jesuit school in Buffalo, who is a passionate advocate for multiple causes on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised. Gugino spent his retirement lending a hand to multiple causes, among them Black Lives Matter.”
