City of Leith, ND (subject of attempted White Supremacy Takeover) issues Statement today on Commander of the White Supremacist Movement’s Planned Public Meeting Tomorrow at 2 MST, at which Natives will join the good people of ND to send a message that Bigotry, NeoNazis and the NSM are not welcome.
The City of Leith, ND statement is as follows:
“We are deeply disturbed that one of the residents of our small community has invited hate groups to our town and to the state of North Dakota. One of these hate groups, the National Socialist Movement, is planning to hold a meeting in our city hall on Sunday afternoon, and raise neo Nazi flags on property around our town.
The values of our town include safety and acceptance for everyone. We stand firmly against the bigoted views of this group, and will not be participating in their events.
We urge other North Dakotans to peaceably join us in telling hate groups they are not welcome in our state.
We have been told by other communities where the National Socialist Movement, a neo Nazi group, has tried to organize that the words and actions at their events are designed to provoke confrontation.
We would rather draw attention to the good people who live in our town, in our county and in our state. While the neo Nazis are meeting in our city hall, we will be gathering in and around Leith to show that we stand together against hate, and stand with all North Dakotans.”
