STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. - Jan. 23, 2019 - PRLog -- In recent weeks, things have gone from bad to worse for the white supremacist organizers of "Rock Stone Mountain II," which is scheduled for the Saturday before the Super Bowl at Stone Mountain Park outside Atlanta. They admitted failure in their attempt to legally challenge the Park's denying them a permit, and have been widely and publicly exposed by anti-racists. Last week, Jennette Estes – a white supremacist "Rock Stone Mountain" supporter and wife of its main organizer – was exposed by Atlanta Antifascists as a passenger service agent working for Delta Airlines at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

The response by "Rock Stone Mountain" organizers to these setbacks has been to lash out at everyone, even other racist and far-Right groups. In a sign of their increasingly volatile mindset, the organizers even called on Facebook for their supporters to make a "polite" visit to the head of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association who denied their permit.

The Klan/neo-Nazi rally has now stated that they will not provide a centralized meeting-point for their event, instead calling for racist groups to descend on the Park in groups of less than 25 to "make the entire park our playground" and "push back against the Commie scum." The FLOWER anti-racist coalition views this as a clear threat to marginalized communities and any opponents of racist monuments, and in response will mobilize a mass presence at Stone Mountain Park that day, to block white supremacists who are now planning a decentralized invasion of the Park.

"The only answer to this threat is mass mobilization," says Andrea McDonald of the FLOWER coalition. "We call on all community members to join us, as we stand up against the Klan and white supremacist terror."
