View facebook event here.
Several weeks ago, White Lives Matter held a protest in front of another empty building on a Saturday at the NAACP office which is detailed in this report here. The Neo-Nazis were protected by the police and divided from the residents of the 3rd Ward, largely African-American, by metal barricades. They held signs which said, “14 words,” a reference to David Lane, a member of the Neo-Nazi terrorist group, The Order. This demonstration was proceeded by several similar protests in Dallas, and represents an escalation of organizing by Neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

We know that contexts might be different from place to place and that some times we get lost into the partiality of our small or big fights against this or that expression of domination and Power.
