CONFRONT AND DISRUPT RACIST AMERICAN RENAISSANCE CONFERENCE
March on Nazi Conference this Saturday, February 23, at 10am!!!
On February 22-24, prominent neo-nazis and other white supremacists from the US and across the world will gather at the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport Hotel in Herndon, VA (2200 Centreville Road) to vent their hatred and spew their racist venom towards communities of color. Join area anti-fascists in a march from Chandon Park (352 Juniper Ct., Herndon, VA) to the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We will then converge at the hotel to protest, confront and disrupt the racist hate spouted by the AmRen National Conference.
The hotel has already received dozens of calls and emails urging them to disassociate themselves with this racist hate group. Help continue the campaign right up through the conference itself by calling the Hotel at (703) 471-6700 and by joining us in protest Saturday morning.
The AmRen conference organizers call for a white supremacist society and political order. American Renaissance (AmRen) editor Jared Taylor (2705 Green Holly Springs, Oakton, VA 22124 (703) 716-0930) even states: "If whites permit themselves to be displaced, it is not just the high culture of the West that could disappear but such things as representative government, rule of law and freedom of speech, which whites usually get right and everyone else usually gets wrong."
American Renaissance is a monthly magazine promoting an agenda of white supremacy through eugenics, faux science, and what they call “race realism.” In attempts to appeal to the middle and educated classes of white America, AmRen seeks to establish scientific “truths” such as eugenics by creating non-existent links between race and IQ, and by creating even more non- existent links between race and the predisposition to “negative social behaviors”. AmRen advances the racist beliefs of “Racial differences in IQ”, the “costs of diversity,” and the “challenges of non-white immigration.” One quick glance at their website reveals articles with titles like: “A Defense of White Racial Consciousness”; “The Biological Realities of Race”; “Multiculturalism and the War Against White America”; and “The Color of Crime.”
However, it is not just the racist cosmopolitan that AmRen appeals to. Editor Jared Taylor and his cohorts have been known to schmooze with current, and former, members of the Klan (David Duke); Don Black, the operator of a “prominent” white supremacist website stormfront.org; Michael Regan, NY state prosecutor fired after attending the 2006 AmRen conference; and members of the neo-fascist British National Party. We can expect all of them and more to attend their gathering this weekend.
To get to Chandon Park using public transportation, take the Orange Line metro to the West Falls Church station. Then, take the Fairfax Connector Bus #950 towards Reston Town Center. Get off at Elden St and Herndon Parkway and walk right for about a quarter of a mile. The park will be on your right. The bus leaves West Falls Church Metro every half hour starting at 8am (8am, 8:31am, 9:03am, 9:33am, 10:01am, 10:25am, 11:01am…) and takes approximately 30 minutes.
