City leaders encourage people to oppose Ku Klux Klan rally • Saturday November 23, 2002

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Nov. 20, 2002

A “No Hate” demonstration against a Ku Klux Klan rally will begin at 11:30 a.m. Saturday outside the War Memorial Center at the lakefront, then march to the federal courthouse.

The Ku Klux Klan, the World Church of the Creator and the National Socialist Movement have a permit for their rally at 1 p.m. Saturday at the courthouse, 517 E. Wisconsin Ave.

Common Council President Marvin Pratt, Ald. Don Richards and representatives of Mayor John O. Norquist, County Executive Scott Walker and various community groups gathered at City Hall on Wednesday to announce the counterdemonstration and a campaign to post “No Hate” signs in windows of government buildings and offices.

“We come together to oppose the message of hate and to replace hate with our message of racial unity, peace and justice,” said Robert Miranda, who has organized the Take a Stand Against the Klan Coalition.

He asked government officials to post a “No Hate” sign in windows to show that hatred won’t be tolerated.

Pratt recalled that the city of Atlanta used to have the motto: “the city too busy to hate.”

“Milwaukee is a city too busy to hate,” he said. “We must put an end to hate and take a stand against it.”

Charles Reese, a Norquist staff assistant, read a statement from the mayor that said most people in Milwaukee “disagree passionately” with the Klan and other supremacist groups.

“If they made their voices heard, they’d drown out the Klan’s message of hate,” the statement said.
