ATTENTION: THIS IS A PERMITTED EVENT
Join us as we gather to take a stand against the rise of white supremacist terrorism in our country. Charlottesville, last year, we witnessed hate groups including KKK, neonazis, 3%ers militias, among many other groups terrorize the city with no interference from law enforcement. We witnessed the death of Heather Heyer and the savage assault of DeAndre Harris. Shots were fired by white supremacists in broad daylight, 10 feet from law enforcement officers with no immediate consequence. Two police officers died in a helicopter as a result of having to patrol the skies during he hate rally that day.
This year, their failed attempt at a 'part 2' is evidence that we are stronger when we are present and stand face to face with those who are on a mission to send this country back to the early 1900's.
This is not the time to fall back into complacency. The battle has just begun.
Spike Lee's rendition of the embarrassment that the KKK experienced in the movie "BlacKKKlansman" has sparked a resurgence of the local KKK chapters, specifically in the York County area. This along with the flyering campaigns and terrorizing of the local black community is a sure sign that we must continue onward and forward to smash fascism and racism where it stands.
On December 2nd, from 1- 4pm we will be rallying our community. We've seen an increase in the comfortability of hate group to visit our city and stand on our Capitol Steps spewing hate speech. This is the time to say NO MORE. These hate groups should not feel comfortable coming to Harrisburg City, which is made up of 70% minority communities, and spread hatred and ignorance.
We are gathering in order to elevate the voices of the voiceless.
Come let your voice be heard and come with peaceful intentions to listen with an open heart and mind.
On December 2nd, a day after Rosa Parks famously took her stand for our people.
Each one bring 2 others and so on and so on. Systemic and institutional white supremacy has had it's run, if we do not stand up and fight together, then who will?
Bring drums, megaphones, voices, passion, love, signs and most importantly bring others and yourselves.
Stay safe Fam.
