This Friday!!! January 8th! Protest Nazi supporters!!!!! Important!!!

This Friday, January 8th at 3 p.m outside of the walnut room on the U of O campus here in Eugene.
That's right, you heard it. This Friday, January 8th at 3:00 p.m in the Walnut room of the U of O campus will be host to a Pacifica Forum meeting. This group in particular has been labeled as a white supremacist organization and not without reason. In the past they have hosted Holocaust deniers and supporters of the "National Socialist Movement" a known Neo-Nazi organization. In they're last meeting, speaker Jimmy Marr invited all those in attendance to join him in giving the Sieg Heil salute. Marr also showed video footage from a National Socialist Movement demonstration in Phoenix, Arizona. The video shows one of the speakers pointing at a protester and shouting: "YOU are a Jew! A traitor Jew!". The Pacifica Forum claims to be a free speech discussion panel with a more then overt tendency to host hate groups. The question is, do we as a community want to continue to allow such hate speech to go unopposed. If you feel as we at the Black Tea Society do, that hate speech of this magnitude has no reason to continue in a remotely progressive community then join us, this Friday at 3:00 pm outside the Walnut room on the campus of the U of O. Signs and loud voices are incredibly welcome! Please resend this message to all you're friends who wish to join us in our opposition to the Pacifica Forum!

Once again- This Friday, January 8th at 3 p.m outside of the walnut room on the U of O campus here in Eugene.

Life, Love and Liberation,
Black Tea Society
