ethanfender: Defend our neighborhoods!!

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.

I don't live in Mpls anymore, but I passed this on to two other Mpls lists.
