NEWNAN: Do not host the National Socialist Movement's rally

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!


Newnan, Georgia has agreed to allow the National Socialist movement to meet and rally in Greenville Park on April 21st.

The National Socialist Movement is a neo-nazi organization. By allowing their rally in Newnan, the city is showing complacency in the bigotry and hate crimes committed by white supremacists. Newnan should be a welcoming place for all races of people. We live in a society already plagued by social injustices, terrorism, and hatred. Why allow that in our city? Why accept that sort of behavior? 

Together we have to make sure Newnan is a safe and accepting place. Hosting a white nationalist group is toxic for everyone involved. We cannot be the city that allows hatred and discrimination, especially when roughly 47% of the population is nonwhite. Allowing the NSM into Newnan shows that people of color are not welcome.

By not allowing the NSM and other extremist groups to organize, the city shows that that sort of thought process will not be tolerated and does not represent our community as a whole. Having the rally will only make Newnan seem unwelcoming and hateful with the implied support of neo-nazism. The NSM will be the representation of our town on April 21st. We cannot stand idly by while a hate group holds a demonstration.

This rally affects all of us as the events in a city are typically tied to the people who live there. We are not neo-nazis, nor will we allow neo-nazis to gather here.

In addition to signing this petition, I urge you to gather friends and family in support of a counter-protest in any way possible to stand against white supremacy and support Downtown Newnan businesses as small stores close in relation to the protest occurring.
