Doing it for Dave: A Tribute to Dave Franklin @ Asbury Park Convention Hall | Asbury Park | New Jersey | United States

Last month, we lost Dave Franklin, the lead singer of the band Vision. The impact that was felt across generations of the hardcore scene was unmeasurable, and he is truly missed. Below is the announcement

Friends…This is the OFFICIAL announcement for the Dave Franklin Tribute Show at the Asbury Park Convention Hall on April 2. Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster at 10:00am TODAY, February 10 (see link on this flyer). Please note that the ticket price for this amazing bill is only $25, and proceeds will benefit two organizations that Dave would have strongly supported – the North Shore Animal League and the Riot Fest Foundation. There will also be a fantastic afterparty/show featuring World Inferno/Friendship Society and Hub City Stompers, with more details provided soon. PLEASE REPOST/SHARE this announcement far and wide! Do it for Dave and come out with us to memorialize him in a way he would truly love on April 2!!’

ALERT! Nat’l Socialist Movement and Traditionalist Worker Party Holding Conference & Rally in Kentucky @ Jenny Wiley State Resort Park
Apr 28 @ 12:00 pm – Apr 29 @ 5:00 pm
ALERT! Nat'l Socialist Movement and Traditionalist Worker Party Holding Conference & Rally in Kentucky @ Jenny Wiley State Resort Park | Prestonsburg | Kentucky | United States

It’s that time of year again when we gear up for yet another National Socialist Movement (NSM) conference. Once again set in April. And this year it’s not under simply the banner of the NSM, but in their joint effort with Matthew Heimbach and Matt Parrot’s Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) called the Nationalist Front. They are having their conference on the evening of the April 28 in Kentucky at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, borrowing a tactic from the American Renaissance and National Policy Institute conferences and holding them in a public facility because they feel they can’t be thrown out of them – forgetting that also means they can’t throw out the opposition either. That remains to be seen however because residents are already working on their local officials to shut this event down somehow. See, the reason why they can’t throw them out of a public space because it is just that – a public space. That means the community is using this park as well and they are bringing their families and friends to enjoy the park. If that park has to shut down or if the Nationalist Front poses a safety risk to the regular visitors, that’s going to be taken into consideration, especially if they are telling their people in their official announcement, “All attendees should be prepared for possible Leftist attacks, we will not be driven from the streets, under any circumstances.”

The next day will be their rally on the courthouse steps in nearby Pikeville, KY. There is something to be said about this considering it will be the 25th anniversary of the Los Angeles Rebellion which took place after the not guilty verdicts were handed down to four LA police officers involved in the videotaped Rodney King beating. Add to that the fact that Jenny Wiley Park is named after a settler women whose story was that she was held hostage for almost a year by indigenous people that killed her family and you pretty much can get a sense of the victimization theme that this conference is going to have, despite their declaration that they are standing up for mine workers in the region. No, they won’t be doing that. Mine workers are the ones telling them they are not welcome.

Already there are plans on the antifa side to oppose this event, although so far the only event announced is a “Rally for Equality” being put on by the community there. As always, we will keep everyone posted about any new developments between now and that weekend.

Building our collective strength as a movement and as a community committed to social justice is more important than ever. Join us for Left Forum 2017

The Allied Media Conference is a collaboratively designed event. Conference content is curated with care every year by 100+ volunteer coordinators of tracks, practice spaces, and network gatherings. The conference features over 300 hands-on workshops, panels, film screenings, Detroit tours, art and music events, strategy sessions, karaoke, bowling, collaborative art and more!

ALERT! 2017 American Renaissance Conference – Opposition Already Planning @ Montgomery Bell Inn and Conference Center
Jul 28 @ 5:00 pm – Jul 30 @ 5:30 pm

It was first announced on Stormfront and immediately it started going through the antifa circles, so you know that AmRen 2017 is going to be met with opposition. They know it too. That’s probably why the theme of this year’s conference is “Turning the Tide”, That’s not just a reference to what they think might be happening during Trump’s reign. It is also the name of a popular antifa publication by Anti-Racist Action L.A.-People Against Racist Terror! That’s a good sign that they are picking a fight, particularly with antifa, but after years of going it alone throwing Jared Taylor & Co. out on their asses from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to the Washington, DC area to Charlotte, NC, antifa are finding out that thanks to the Electoral College giving Trump the White House they are joined. Significantly. So Montgomery Bell Park Inn just might find itself with the biggest anti-AmRen rally they have seen since AmRen had been hosting conferences there in 2013.

Jared Taylor being asked to leave Canada in 2007.

Now for those who don’t know, this is at a conference center at Montgomery Bell State Park. It’s 45 minutes from Nashville, Tennessee and there is no public transportation there. They chose this location not just because it is a public facility – which means by the way that the public has a right to be inside the conference center that we should say has a great restaurant – but because it is so remote. That’s not going to deter folks this time around, and the fact that this is taking place in the summer as opposed to the usual spring outings they have, expect that even more.

We will have more information about this as things develop.
