With the Bush administration firmly entrenched in power, true
fascists – an assortment of neo-Nazi and other far-right
groups – are no longer afraid to organize publicly, far from
their home base of support. The National Socialist Movement
(NSM) is planning a large public demonstration on September
25th in Valley Forge, PA. The NSM, who refer to themselves as
“America’s Nazi Party,” feel no need to hide in their
homes in Minnesota, and have instead chosen a location on the
East Coast less than half an hour from the very multi-racial and
multi-cultural City of Philadelphia. We in Anti-Racist Action are
planning a counter-demonstration to oppose these fascists, and
are inviting all those who believe in freedom and equality to join
us in sending the NSM a strong message that fascist scum are
not welcome in Pennsylvania!

While it may appear that the NSM is just a fringe group,
especially here on the East Coast, and that it is not worthwhile to
oppose such a group, it is important to note that there is currently
a power vacuum in the white power movement. With Matt Hale,
the leader of the World Church of the Creator in jail, and the
death of William Pierce, the founder and head of the National
Alliance, other fascist scum are feeling lost without any strong
leadership. Other white power organizations like the NSM realize
that this power vacuum exists and are attempting to fill it. It is for
this reason that the NSM will attract fascists of all stripes – in
numbers – to their demonstration in Valley Forge. Neo-Nazis
are currently seeking organization, structure, and public
organizing – all of which they will be looking to the NSM for
on September 25th.

For this reason alone, it is of utmost importance that anti-fascists
show a huge amount of opposition in Valley Forge. This is not a
time that we can we can sit back and ignore the organizing
fascists are currently engaging in. We CANNOT give the
neo-Nazis any room to organize and recruit. We must not allow
the existing power vacuum to be filled. We must be there on
September 25th in Valley Forge to take away any illusion of
organization and power the NSM is trying to present. We must
stand up and join together, sending a clear message that such
activity is not welcome in our communities.

Please join us in opposing the NSM rally in Valley Forge.
Let’s send these neo-Nazis home knowing that their
behavior will not be tolerated here in PA, or anywhere else.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

In solidarity, Philadelphia Anti-Racist Action
