The Dallas Uprising was an uprising conducted by fascist insurgents against the Government of the Allied States in Dallas, Texas. It began on 10 May 2010 with a massive block of transportation systems by both aggressive and passive insurgents. The Government of the Allied States claimed it ended on 17 May 2010, however, many claim fighting and disturbances didn't end until at least 5 June. The insurgents, the American Fascist Alliance, were part of the International Fascist Federation.

Beginning[]

The uprising began with a mass transportation block of railways and roads with stones, and the destruction of some transportation infrastructure. When Dallas police reacted aggressively with tear gas, the protest turned violent as rioters started using molotov-cocktails and sidearms. The Texas National Guard deployed about 4,000 Guardsmen to fight the insurgents off, however, because of the confusion - many AFA members were peaceful protesters - troops found it difficult to effectively find and neutralize their targets.

Witness reports[]

The initial reports of rebellious activity were reported largely by people dialing 911. Some of these calls were made public:

- Dispatcher: 911 do you require police, fire or medical assistance?
- Caller: Uh -- I'm not sure. I guess police.
- Dispatcher: Alright, sir, tell me what's happening.

- Dispatcher: Yes sir, we've received calls concerning that already. At least once officer should already be on scene.
- Caller: I--- I can't see him. They're throwing rocks [glass breaking, sirens clearly heard in the background] at the buses --- Oh shit! They're setting the terminal ---- fire! [loudspeaker in the background: "Disperse!"]
- Dispatcher: Sir, stay calm and --- do you have passengers in the bus?
- Caller: No, no, I am -- alone [thumb]. But more police are arriving. It doesn't look good, there are too many rioters for them to control.
- Dispatcher: The police will handle it, please stay in the vehicle. Would you like to stay on the line with me, or will you be alright on your own?
- Caller: I think [thumb] I'll be alright. More cops are coming.
