Community Groups Organize Against Neo-Nazi and Klan Rally on Stone Mountain
Rock Stone Mountain 2 is organized by the same individuals responsible for the Rock Stone Mountain white supremacist rally of April 2016, such as Neo-Nazi John Estes and Klan leader Greg Calhoun. In 2016, the first Rock Stone Mountain was disrupted by a wide-ranging coalition of community groups.
Since the 2016 Rock Stone Mountain event, there has been a dramatic rise in Neo-Nazi and Alt-Right activity, leading to murders and other acts of extreme violence across the country. The 2019 Rock Stone Mountain event comes in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue; the conviction of James Alexander Fields Jr. for his vehicular attack in Charlottesville, VA in 2017; prosecutions against the white supremacist Rise Above Movement for conspiracy and gang assaults; and the exposure of a clandestine Neo-Nazi paramilitary network called The Base.
Earlier in 2018, Georgia law enforcement agencies spent over $200K to protect a Michigan-based Nazi organization's rally in Newnan, Georgia while brutalizing anti-racist protestors. This is why FLOWER's website states, "Police, politicians, and government authorities will not solve the problem of racism for us. We must rely on each other to end white supremacy. We support grassroots anti-racist coordination in our schools, workplaces, and on the streets."
"The community of Stone Mountain, home to many people of color and immigrants, is again being targeted by violent white supremacists,"
