round up of Lansing anti-NSM news

i'm gonna post some links to various reports about this past weekends events in Lansing. it seems that there is a general thougt that the NSM had roughly 80 members present (although the NSM is claiming higher - 160) with 25 visible non-NSM supporters show up. the anti-racists who went to directly confront the NSM seemed to number between 700-900, while the Lansing city government sponsored diversity rally, Win The Day, had somewhere around 1,000 people show up throughout the day.
