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.

For more information, please contact Philadelphia Anti-Racist Action ­

In solidarity,
Philadelphia Anti-Racist Action*
