D.C. Anti-Nazi demonstration

By Michael Stark and Michael Link | January 11, 2002 | Page 10

WASHINGTON, D.C.--About 150 antiracist protesters confronted 50 neo-Nazis holding a rally outside the Israeli embassy in December denouncing U.S. support for Israel.

The Nazi demonstration outside the Israeli embassy marks the fourth time that the National Alliance organized a rally here in the last year. The group has been trying to capitalize on fear surrounding the events of September 11 and growing concerns over Israeli attacks on Palestinians to spread their message of hate.

Antiracist demonstrators shouted down the Nazis with chants like, "Nazi bigots always lie, they don't care if Arabs die!" and "Muslim, Jew, Black and white, all unite to fight the right!" The anti-Nazi protesters also expressed their solidarity with Palestinian self-determination.

We must organize to keep D.C. Nazi-free!
