Aryan Nation's Leader Solicits Support From Businesses
By: Erich R. Ebel
In north Idaho, in a bizarre twist, Richard Butler is asking Coeur d'Alene businesses for their support. Fliers promoting Butler were found on the doors of various shops and restaurants in downtown Coeur d'Alene this morning. The now-bankrupt leader of the Aryan Nations asked people to join his march this weekend. But anti-hate fliers were also passed out in response to Butler's message. One-hundred and forty local businesses are prepared to close on the day of Butler's march. Julie Cohen-Anderson is with the Closed For Hate campaign. "He suggests to the nation that everyone in north Idaho believes this because he says there is no protest they obviously agree with him and so we are trying to show that yes, there is a protest by either the businesses posting the readerboard message or closing and posting the closed for hate or staying open and having a task force sign." Here in Spokane, the second annual Walk Against Hate takes place on Sunday at Chief Garry park at 2:30. If you'd like more information, call 329-1410.
