The “League of the South,” a racist, white nationalist hate group, is attempting to hold a rally/protest at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Elizabethton, Tennessee, on September 29, 2018.
The purpose of this Event is twofold:
First, the regulations of the Tennessee Park Service state that an application for an event permit can only be rejected due to “safety” concerns, or because the proposed location cannot handle the event in question. By indicating you will attend a counter-protest against the League of the South, you will help us demonstrate that the massive surge of counter-protesters such an event will draw would be unmanageable for our small State Park.
Second, if the League of the South is able to obtain its permit and hold its rally, this Event will help us coordinate an actual counter-protest–one that demonstrates the real spirit of American equality and liberty which was born at Fort Watauga and is celebrated every day at Sycamore Shoals State Park.
