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

posted on June 9, 2020

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.”
