PENNSBURG, Pa. - People living in Pennsburg, Montgomery County decided to have a united, peaceful response against recent anti-Semitic and racist mailings that were sent to their neighborhood.
They gathered Sunday night in a show of solidarity against the white supremacist propaganda.
The group says they want to show they support equality, respect, and compassion for all people.
"We're gonna drown you out. You might be loud, but we're gonna be louder. It was in this same square 26 years ago that I was up here shouting down KKK members that had a permit to march. And I'm astonished that 26 years later we're back here. I got little kids here and I hope they don't have to come out and do something like this one day," said protestor Tom Manion.
The vigil was planned after Nazi propoganda was sent to neighborhoods in East Greenville, Red Hill, and Upper Perkiomen.
Police say they don't know who sent the flyers. They did have a reference to an alt-right website on them.
It's official; the newly formed East Greenville Borough Police Department in Montgomery County has its headquarters.Read More »
