March 21 rally against the Aryan Guard Update

We received the following update and contact information and we thought we would post it for the benefit of those who plan on attending the rally:

The March 21 rally against the Aryan Guard is now only 12 days away and we would again like to ask everyone to invite their friends to this event if they haven't done so already.

Currently we only have a little over 300 confirmed attendees and would like to muster a significantly larger crowd than that.

Last March 21, the white supremacist gang the Aryan Guard marched in Calgary to spread their message of hate. They plan on marching again this year.

On Saturday, March 21 come tell the Aryan Guard that they are NOT welcome in Calgary.

What: A demonstration against racism and the Aryan Guard
When: Saturday, March 21 10:00am onwards
Where: The steps of City Hall - 700 McLeod Tr SE
Why: To show the world Calgary does not tolerate racism and white supremacists

Last year, over 200 anti-racism protestors confronted 40 Aryan Guard supports in downtown Calgary. Let's try to double this number.
