Come Join Us! Olympia responds to Nazis

The neo-Nazi group, National Socialist Movement, (NSM) is
planning a major rally where they are inviting white
supremacists from many States to Olympia. Their
announced rally of hatred is planned for this coming
Monday, July 3rd from 2 to 4 P.M. at the steps of the
Legislative Bldg at the State Capitol. We hope to
surround them on Monday afternoon and turn our backs
on them and turn their rally into one for racial,
economic and social justice, and to non-violently make
it clear that Nazis are not welcome in Olympia or
anywhere. Many of us will be dressed as clowns.
