49. The answer is to attend the event and heckle the speakers.
I saw this happen back in the '70s in downtown Chicago. It was a few lunatic Nazis versus a couple of thousand anti-Nazi demonstrators with lots of Chicago cops in between. I had to work on Sunday and saw and heard (couldn't work because of the noise) the demo from my office window.

The Nazis didn't last long.

The next day the word was that the cops had to tell the Nazis that they couldn't continue to guarantee their safety. The Nazis made a quick run to their vans and took off.

It was a great example of free speech at work.
