White Unity? It's Bonehead Against Bonehead in the "White Pride" Scene

On April 11, 2009, the white supremacist group "East Coast White Unity" (ECWU) plans to host a neo-nazi gathering in Boston, MA named "Patriot Action 2009". The co-sponsor of this event is Volksfront International, a racist skinhead organization founded in 1994, which has a presence in several US states as well as chapters in Canada, Australia and Europe. Although the Boston event is intended as a display of unity between fascist groups, anti-fascists have discovered plotting and betrayal behind the scenes of the white power movement, the extent of which many event organizers and scheduled attendees might not be aware.

The primary organizer for East Coast White Unity is Scott Clarke, a Massachusetts resident who uses the handle of "Hedge" on several white nationalist internet sites. Before the founding of ECWU, Clarke was active in another white power organization named "North East White Pride" (NEWP). Clarke broke from NEWP for a large number of reasons--including questions about the use of finances, and alleged general mismanagement of NEWP by leader Rob O'Donovan--and moved on to form ECWU. NEWP continues to this day in a reduced form, still under the direction of O'Donovan. By all accounts, the split was acrimonious. As we will show, it wasn't enough for Clarke to leave NEWP taking much of its membership with him; he also tried to sabotage his former "brothers."

In August 2008, anti-fascists from DatenAntifa ("Data-Antifa") hacked the fascist website bloodandhonour.com. The entire contents of this website were then uploaded to the web, so that anyone who wished to see its posts and user information could do so. While most of the original web links are no longer available, the hacked Blood and Honour forum may still be downloaded via torrent sites. Importantly, the DatenAntifa hackers removed password requirements from the bloodandhonour.com site, so that anyone who downloaded its contents could check the private messages of any Blood and Honour user. This is where things became interesting for us.
