Counter protestors say they shut down white supremacist rally plans

“Every time we hear about you coming we will be out, whether we number one or 1,000,” Avalon Fyreheart told attendees of the event. More than a dozen people showed up with the Louder than Hate event to counter an alleged White Lives Matter rally scheduled for Saturday, May 8, and to speak out against hateful acts occurring around the metro area. According to public Telegram chats organized by the White Lives Matter North Dakota, a rally was planned for the same day at 9 a.m., but was cancelled late Friday, May 7. “Just to clarify, there’s no protest planned for May 8th. Originally we were, but due to low turnout at (on) April 11th I decided not to try for one,” wrote the White Lives Matter USA North Dakota chat administrator. “The reason we are here is because of a group called White Lives Matter, they are trying to organize monthly and thanks to our counter protest they canceled,” said event organizer Vanessa Clark, adding that some members did show up for the April 11 White Lives Matter rally. “It is good news for us,” Clark said. “Being pro white and white supremacist are the same thing. Black Lives Matter is in no way saying that black lives are superior, but you can read their views in Telegram. They believe white people are entitled to power. They believe white people are entitled by God.”
