Anti-nazi protest planned for Philadelphia, October 19th
From Philadelphia Residents Against Racism:
For the past 7 years, the city of Philadelphia has played host to a gathering of Neo-Nazis right under the noses of its residents.
This gathering, known as "The Leif Ericson Day Celebration" is organized, promoted, and attended exclusively by members of Neo-Nazi organizations. In past years the gathering has drawn upwards of 50 hardcore racists and fascists to Philly and served as an recruiting and organizing tool for the main organization involved, the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS)....
KSS has announced their event for October 19th in Fairmount Park. If past years are any indication, they will do a very short march in formation down lemon hill at Noon and attempt to lay a wreath and make speeches at the statue of Thorfin Karlson along Kelly drive.
We plan to mobilize a huge contingent of Anti-Racists, progressives, and all good people of Philly to the Thorfin Karlson statue. THIS WILL BE A PEACEFUL PROTEST. Please bring any signs, banners, noise makers or drums in order for our contingent to block/drown out the hate-speech of the Nazis....
The anti-nazi protest is also being promoted by One People's Project.
