KKK Rally Draws 1,000 Protesters in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Reuter) - Ku Klux Klan members held a rally
Saturday to recruit new members and deliver what they say is a
message of hope and deliverance as about 1,000 people showed up
to protest the white supremacists.

Standing in a heavy rainstorm, 26 Klan members stood on the
steps of the Jefferson County courthouse, wearing their trademark
white robes and hoods. They waved American flags while shouting a
message of white supremacy.

There was no violence at the rally, which was held by Klan
members from Indianapolis. The estimated 600 police officers on
hand at the rally did not make any arrests.

The Ku Klux Klan advocates white supremacy and believes other
ethnic groups including Jews and African Americans are a threat
to the white race.

``If you are white, you are an endangered species,'' shouted
Klan member Christopher Johnson from the courthouse steps. His
speech was cheered by about 75 Klan supporters who attended the
rally.

The rally lasted about an hour and a half. Klan supporters and
the nearly 1,000 people who showed up to protest the event were
separated by fence barriers.

``We had no problems at all,'' said a Louisville police
official. ``I think the rain dampened the festivities, so to
speak.''

The Klan members arrived in Louisville on Friday. Police said
the members had no plans to stay until Sunday. The rally was
intended to recruit new members.

Ron Ricucci, Jefferson County police chief, said the rally
contained the most inflammatory rhetoric by the Klan that he has
ever heard.

The rally marked the first time since 1975 the Klan has been
in Louisville. The group came to the city that year to protest
school desegregation when Kentucky began sending black children
to all-white schools and white students to all-black schools.

CALIFORNIA: MARCH WITHOUT BORDERS

--Note: The following article reports on the March Without
Borders (La Marcha Sin Fronteras) undertaken by the Four Winds
Student Movement and other student supporters from Temecula
Border Patrol checkpoint to the San Diego/Tijuana border. See,
Olivia Garcia, "Trek Starts to Honor Migrants," THE
PRESS-ENTERPRISE, Riverside, California, Wednesday, April 10,
1996, A-14.

Posted: Roberto R. Calderon/<beto@ucrac1.ucr.edu>
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Seeking to honor those who cross from Mexico to the United
States and draw attention to the abuse they endure, 15 people
began a six-day, 76-mile trek Tuesday [April 9] from near
Temecula to the border.

The launch of LLa Marcha Sin Fronteras or "March Without
Borders" was chronicled by a horde of media. Organizers said they
began in the Temecula area because it was the starting point of
two incidents involving undocumented immigrants.

On Saturday [April 6], seven people were killed and 19 were
injured when an overloaded truck overturned outside Temecula as a
Border Patrol unit followed at a distance, according to
authorities.

Last week [April 1], a news helicopter in Los Angeles County
videotaped two undocumented immigrants being beaten by Riverside
County Sheriff's deputies at the conclusion of an 80-mile
pursuit.

Organizers said they hope the march will draw public attention
to the dangers, such as the beatings and deadly chases, that
migrant workers and families face as they attempt to cross the
border.

"We believe no human being is illegal," said marcher Angel
Cervantes, a 23-year-old history student at Claremont Graduate
School. "We want to show what's going on in honor of the people
who have made this trip. They're not here to leech off the
country, but to live and provide a service."

The walk reflects a small part of what some people undergo as
they cross over to the United States for a better life, said
Cervantes.

"We will take five days out of our student schedule to try to
see what our parents had to go through to get to this country,"
said Olga Miranda, a 19-year-old student at California State
University, Los Angeles.

The group hoped to reach Escondido about 11 Tuesday night,
said Cruz.

Their goal is to reach Border Field State Park near the U.S.-
Mexico border Sunday morning or midday.

"A lot of businesses have access to cross the border, but
human beings don't have that access," said Karla Ek, a 20-
year-old Santa Monica City College student. "We're calling
out support from all communities."

The march attracted 14-year-old Juana Olivera and her
grandmother, Ninfa Abarca, 55. Olivera said she has been upset
from the moment she saw the videotaped beating of a female
undocumented immigrant by two Riverside County Sheriff's deputies
last week.

"I feel bad because she is a woman," said the tearful Olivera,
who remembers when her family crossed the border five years ago.
"We are all the same."

"I feel it in my heart to come and help the Mexican people."

It has recently been revealed that at least two Montreal
cops were assigned to infiltrate the Coalition of groups which
organized against Human Life International last April.

According to a police report recently obtained by Montreal
activists, Constables C. Brais (badge # 141) and R. Leblanc
(badge # 1757) were assigned to attend meetings of the Coalition
and identify potentially violent groups. According to the report
signed by Constable Brais, her attendance at meetings enabled her
to identify and arrest one activist during an anti-HLI
demonstration.

There is little that could have been done to avoid the
infiltration of the Coalition by two cops, seeing as it was
an open Coalition organizing public events and trying to get the
media's attention and mobilize as many people as possible. For
this reason, the presence of undercover cops shouldn't scare
people away from public organizing or discourage people from
joining public organizations, unless of course you're involved in
something heavy! In fact, Brais' report is full of observations
to the effect that everyone in the Coalition seems to be
non-violent, well-meaning, etc.

According to Brais's report, the police were informed by
"different sources" that during Coalition meetings there had been
dicussions about planting bombs in the Hotel where HLI was
holding its conference and using molotov cocktails! Furthermore,
it was feared that groups from outside of Montreal could provoke
violence. At another point in her report, Constable Brais
describes someone as the "'leader of the Black Block' a group
known for its violence". Pure bullshit. The "Black Block" was an
anarcho-punk contingent which participated in the main
demonstration against HLI. As a contingent, not an organization,
it is difficult to see how it could constitute a "well known
violent group", or how it could include leaders!

Claims of molotov cocktails or bombs are another example of
pure fantasy on the part of the cops. Either this was a fake
lead, meant to rationalize the Montreal police's fishing
expedition, or perhaps some cop bug garbled someone inviting
people to a late night cocktail party and turned this into a
proposed insurrection! Given that millions of people were aware
that HLI was a far-right group which was coming to Montreal to
hold its conference, it is even possible that someone in Canada
did shoot off their mouth about their violent fantasies; all that
can be said for sure is that nothing like this was ever mentioned
at any Coalition meeting. In any case, the fact that no bombs,
molotov cocktails or other weapons were used by anyone of the
thousands of people who protested HLI's presence in Montreal is
ample commentary on these "different sources".

This is not the first time that the police have spied on
activists in Montreal or elsewhere in Canada. In a case similar
to this one, in 1994 several anti-fascists in British columbia
obtained a videotape shot by police spies during a demonstration
at which several arrests were made. Cops from the Integrated
Intelligence Unit, a BC police spy squad, could be heard
throughout the tape exchanging information about the
anti-fascists, a clear sign that they had been involved in spying
on that scene for quite some time. Also in 1994, the Toronto
police intelligence unit (as these spy squads are generically
known) produced "evidence" which was used in the prosecution of
several members of Anti-Racist Action in Toronto (as it turned
out this "evidence" proved inconclusive and the anti-racists were
cleared of all charges against them).

What all of this should impress upon all radical activists
is simple: never forget that the paramount issue is security!
When in a public organization, don't assume that everyone
attending meetings with you has honest intentions. Don't shoot
your mouth off or describe your revolutionary fantasies in front
of people you don't know well. Remember that buildings where
activists often meet are probably bugged, so don't even run off
at the mouth amongst friends unless you're willing to bet your
freedom (and your friend's!) that you're in a safe area. And
please, remember that if you're talking into a phone you might as
well be talking straight to a cop's face!

MILITIA COORDINATOR ON FEDERAL PAYROLL

Testimony reveals that a South Dakota man who operates a militia
communication center is paid $1.775 each month to keep the FBI
informed.

Bill Swindell
World Staff Writer

The FBI is paying a militia member $1,775.00 a month to run a
South Dakota communication center that an agent says will let the
federal government better understand the workings of the
burgeoning movement and possibly prevent tragedies.

That relationship was revealed fully during testimony for the
bombing conspiracy trial of three members of the Universal Church
of God that began last week in Muskogee.

John Parsons is a Tri-State Militia member based in Burke, S.D.
Parsons testified Wednesday that Willie "Ray" Lampley -- one of
the defendants -- came to South Dakota in August and asked him to
help blow up buildings.

Parsons also revealed how as a former truck driver he came to run
the Tri-State's Communication Information Center and what role
the FBI plays in assisting a movement that some perceive as
hostile to the federal government.

"We feel we're here to defend the Constitution," he said.

Parsons has run the center, in an office building on the main
street of Burke, for less than a year. He said the center has two
phone lines, three phones, two computers, two faxes and an 800
number. The center is also on the Internet.

Parsons said he is connected to 900 militia-type units in 48
states.

The center's purpose is to check out the many rumors that militia
members phone, fax or e-mail in and -- sometimes with the federal
government's help -- discern if there is any truth to them and
then relay that back to the militias.

Parsons testified that he sold some personal items to help fund
the center and has gotten some donations.

Parsons also is paid $1,775.00 in cash each month -- which is
reported to the Internal Revenue Service -- by the FBI said
