White Pride Rally in Edmonton March 24

The white supremacist website, Stormfront.org, announced that there would be a white pride rally in Edmonton on March 24 supported by a group that calls itself Blood & Honour (see the announcement here).  The exact location of the rally will be announced the day before.

The Edmonton Journal has reported that Edmonton police “will have a visible presence during the rally to ensure that everybody’s rights to free speech have been respected.” However, no permit has yet been issued for the rally and councillor Amarjeet Sohi has informed Metro News that “the city will not be issuing a permit, because the content of the rally is hate.”

In response to the white pride rally, an anti-racism rally has also been planned for March 24 to be held from noon to 3 p.m. at End of Steel Park near the Old Strathcona Farmers Market.
