Gay Minneapolis / St. Paul
This Saturday, October 3rd, 2009, the neo-nazi National Socialist Movement have threatened to demonstrate against an anti-racist workshop being held at the YWCA on East Lake Street in Minneapolis. The NSM has declared the anti-racist organizers "traitors" to white supremacy.
This provocation also has a wider goal: The NSM has been holding racist anti-immigrant rallies in southern Minnesota, and now they are seeking to establish a presence inside the City of Minneapolis. For years Minneapolis has been a virtual "no-go" area for organized racist activity, due to the efforts of young anti-racist organizers.
It is vital, especially in the wake of the racist attacks in Brooklyn Park last week, that the nazis not go unopposed. They plan to bring their racist, homophobic, anti-immigrant, antisemitic message of division and hate right into the heart of the city. They must not go unopposed!
No to the Nazis!Solidarity Against Racism!
Saturday, October 3rd.

Minneapolis police are looking for two men who attacked a gay woman late Thursday night.
32-year-old Kristen Boyne said she was walking from her apartment to Rainbow Foods in Uptown when two men called her a derogatory word for lesbian and then began punching her in the face and stomach until she lost consciousness.
"It just seemed really random," Boyne said.
Boyne said she offered her attackers her wallet and cell phone but they didn't want it.
Police say Boyne was treated at HCMC. Police urge anyone with information about this crime to call Sgt. Bruce Kohn at 612-673-2941.
