STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. - Jan. 31, 2019 - PRLog -- FLOWER (Front Line Organizations Working to End Racism) regards the "Rock Stone Mountain II" cancellation as a complete vindication of the broader antiracist strategy of relentless opposition to white supremacy. This anti-racist opposition involves multiple levels, including cultural, legal, financial, and physical. We have been working over the past several months to do everything possible on every level to disrupt the "Rock Stone Mountain II" organizing, and our work has obviously paid off — and this work would have been harder if the organizers weren't so manifestly incompetent.

The resistance to their "Rock Stone Mountain" event in 2016 was also an important factor in both RSM canceling their event and in Stone Mountain Park denying a permit to the neo-Nazi/Klan coalition.

As long as the carvings on Stone Mountain remain, the site will inspire other groups of white supremacists to rally around their "sacred ground". We will be ready to resist if Michael Weaver, John Michael Estes or any of the other organizers ever tries anything, but the real solution is to remove all racist monuments from any land where they are not wanted. The people of Stone Mountain do not deserve to live under the threat of random terroristic invasions.

The threat posed by "Rock Stone Mountain" has receded but not entirely disappeared, considering that only last night, John Michael Estes called for "leaderless resistance" violence and guerrilla warfare. We will still mobilize at the announced time and place of 9AM on E. Mountain Street and Main, but in a spirit of celebration. We encourage the whole community to show up and celebrate this victory.

Flower power beats fascist power!
