Neo-nazi protest is surprised by counter-protest

Four neo-Nazi protesters were surprised Saturday by about 200 counter-protesters outside of a South Minneapolis Young Women's Christian Association, the Star Tribune said.

The four men, participants in the National Socialist Movement, were at the midtown YWCA to protest a workshop called, "More Than Skin Deep: Uprooting White Privilege and White Supremacy one cell at a time," the Twin Cities Daily Planet said.

After 30 minutes, the four men were escorted to their car by Minneapolis police officers and counter-protesters, the Star Tribune said.

The neo-Nazi group relocated its Minneapolis headquarters to Detroit, Mich. in 2007, the Twin Cities Daily Planet said.  Their group intends to re-establish a presence in Minneapolis.

More than 100 Minneapolis residents met Wednesday to discuss strategies for a counter-protest, the Twin Cities Daily Planet said.

"Our city must remain a 'no-go' zone where white supremacists cannot organize or build a movement with their hate speech and violence," Dan Gannon, an anti-racist community organizer, said in a press release.
