Anti-Racist/Anti-Fascist action does very good work to both inform the public about racism/Nazism/fascism as well as taking a stand against them.
As posted earlier, there is going to be a neo-Nazi march in Los Angeles Ca next month on April 17, 2010, at the LA city hall.
Of course the moment this was announced ARA and Antifa activists put out the call for the planning of a counter protest to be scheduled this weekend March 13, 2010.
But then, what happened was sort of odd and concerning, the NSM e-mailed the organizer of the counter protests requesting to be there in attendance.

This is a very chilling e-mail to find in one’s box. The online comment response from Michael Novick, People Against Racist Terror
As you are probably aware, the NSM, National Socialist Movement neo-nazi group has called a rally for April 17 at L.A. City Hall and a coalition has formed to expose and expose them. Last night, I received emails (see above) from the NSM implying they had found out the location of the next meeting and would be coming to it. They sign off with their 14/88 numerology signature, a reference to a 14-word racist slogan by a member of the white supremacy underground ‘the Order’ (aka Bruder Schweigen, Silent Brotherhood), and the slogan “Heil Hitler” (HH = 88).
I am putting out an urgent call for people to be present at the next meeting, Saturday morning March 13 at 11:00 AM at the building housing the Youth Justice Coalition, 1137 E. Redondo Blvd, Inglewood (that’s 3 blocks west of Crenshaw Blvd., 1 block north of Florence Avenue) for security purposes, even if you are not able to make an ongoing commitment to the coalition. It’s important to insure that if the nazis do show up, that they will be convinced that driving by and not getting out of their cars is their safest course of action.
I don’t want to cry wolf here, but I think that alerting the community is the most responsible step to take to make sure the nazis cannot carry out any violence or intimidation. Thanks in advance!
