Defend Our Neighborhoods! Defend Anti-Racist Organizing!
This Saturday, October 3rd, 2009, the neo-nazi National Socialist
Movement (NSM) has 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
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.
In the wake of the racist attacks in Brooklyn Park last week, the
nazis’ threat cannot be ignored. They plan to bring their racist,
homophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic message of division and hate
right into the heart of the city. They must not go unopposed!
Organized by local community members. Please be there if you can.
