In the end, an antifascist from Philadelphia was arrested after the neo-Nazis menacingly approached the antifascists, with every intention of assaulting them. Showing their true colors, police rushed in to defend the neo-Nazis and arrest the antifascists, leaving the fascists free to walk the streets while the antifa was carted away to jail.

Dear Friends and Comrades:

As part of a supposed national day of protests organized by various fascist groups, over a dozen neo-Nazis appeared at the state capitol in Harrisburg, PA today to “to arouse the attention of mainstream media to the rapes, murders and other horrendous ATROCITIES our brethren in South Africa [read: white racists] endure on a DAILY BASIS.”

Antifascists from across the region organized to counter this insanely racist propaganda the neo-Nazis were attempting to spout, trying to both shout them down and block their signs so their hateful rhetoric would neither be seen or heard.

We do not have much more information at this point, but we are being told that the person arrested is being charged with simple assault, possession of a concealed non-lethal weapon and at least two other charges. His arraignment is scheduled for sometime tonight – probably after 9PM. We will have the exact bail amount and more information then. In the meantime, considering the number and severity of the charges we do know about, we are starting to fundraise bail money.
