Facists Confronted in Valley Forge, PA
09/28/2004
On the Jewish Holy Day Yom Kippur, Over 100 white supremacists turned out for the latest rally put on by the National Socialist Movement (NSM) at Valley Forge Historical Park, while a mile away in the same park double that number turned out for a rally countering the message of hate with a call for unity.

At the same time, a third event was occuring that got little mainstream press; direct opposition to the facists by local and regional anti-facist organizations. For the hours leading up to the neo-Nazi rally as White Supremacists arrived, anti-facists and neo-Nazis scuffled, with anti-facists confronting members of the Minnesota-based National Socialist Movement and other White Power groups directly.
