Lewiston to allow white supremacist rally

WLBZ, Nov. 22, 2002

City leaders in Lewiston have decided to let the white supremacist group The World Church of the Creator come to town.

The group submitted an application to use a city building for an upcoming meeting and on Friday, the city approved the request. Members of the World Church of the Creator are coming to Lewiston to express their beliefs. They say the wave of somali immigrants that have settled in Lewiston upsets them. They say somalis don’t belong there or anywhere else in this country. City officials say they’re not happy about the rally, but they have a constitutional obligation to allow it. The World Church of the Creator will also be responsible for paying for extra security, if the city decides that’s needed.
