Phone Jam to Shut Down the Minutemen Recruiting Drive!

HATE GROUP TO MEET IN BABYLON, NEW YORK! Phone Jam to Shut Down the Minutemen Recruiting Drive!

HATE GROUP TO MEET IN BABYLON, NEW YORK!
Phone Jam to Shut Down the Minutemen Recruiting Drive!

Now the Minutemen are trying to recruit on the East Coast. Help us get them out!

***PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY***

Call American Legion Hall Post #94 and demand that this meeting be
canceled: 631-669-0094

The Minutemen Project, a Conservative anti-immigration group with
strong links to, and overlapping membership with, violent
white supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations has announced plans to
hold a recruitment meeting in Babylon, NY on Saturday, September 10,
2005.

The meeting, scheduled to take place at the Babylon American
Legion Hall (22 Grove Place, Babylon, NY 11702), is set to feature
Chris Simcox, founder of the Minutemen Project, as the main
speaker. Simcox is the gun-toting founder of the group, which since
April has been arming itself, wandering the U.S.-Mexican border in
search of "illegal immigrants", and detaining individuals at gunpoint.
Minutemen have openly discussed setting up sniper posts near the
border, with the goal of shooting anyone attempting to cross.

Contrary to its claims, the Minutemen Project does not promote a
policy of immigration reform. Instead, they promote a program of hate
and intolerance; an extremist policy of stopping all non-white
immigration into this country. They are a xenophobic group that blames
immigration for everything that they are unhappy with. Most recently,
Minutemen have been claiming that illegal immigrants are responsible
for the sudden rise in gas prices in the United States. Talk about
stupid!

The Minutemen have well-established ties to known white supremacist
groups. Minutemen co-founder Jim Gilchrist has been involved with the
neo-Nazi affiliated Council of Conservative Citizens for a number of
years. In addition, members of the infamous National Alliance have
claimed membership in the Minutemen Project and were identified
participating in border "patrols" last spring and summer with the
group. Over the years, the National Alliance has been tied to numerous
violent crimes, such as the assassination of a Jewish radio host in
Denver, and several high-profile robberies. The National Alliance has
the dubious distinction of claiming Timothy McVeigh the man
responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing as a supporter.

On July 30th, the Minutemen-allied group, Save Our State, held an
anti-immigrant rally in California. Numerous members of
white supremacist groups attended this rally, and were caught on film
carrying flags emblazoned with Nazi swastikas and Confederate
insignia. They were also seen repeatedly giving Nazi salutes. One of
the neo-Nazis who had been holding a swastika flag was also
photographed holding a "Save Our State" banner. So much for plausible
deniability!

We call upon everyone who is concerned about this meeting to telephone
the American Legion Hall and demand that it be canceled. We will not
stand idly by while neo-Nazis are allowed to organize in our
community. We are calling for an emergency phone jam of the hall, and
are letting it be known that if the meeting is not canceled, the
community will be out in force to protest these fascist scum!

Call the American Legion Hall at 631-669-0094 and let them know how
you feel about them laying out the welcome mat for fascists. Please
forward this message widely together we can shut them down!!
