Flathead Valley residents taking part in a peaceful protest at Kalispell’s Depot Park Tuesday said they were intimidated by a man displaying a Nazi flag.

Love Lives Here in the Flathead Valley community organizer Cherilyn DeVries said the man made threatening remarks towards protesters for 45 minutes.

The protesters not affiliated with Love Lives Here meet weekly at Deport Park voicing concerns about President Trumps administration.

DeVries said protesters acted properly by contacting authorities and not getting involved with violence.

She said safety is the top priority for protesters in threatening situations.

“Do not engage, take a photo if you can and then get a report to authorities so that we’re aware that this activity is happening,” said DeVries.
