White separatists march in Jena

January 22, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

About 50 white separatists demonstrated on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in Jena, which was thrust into the spotlight months ago by 20,000 demonstrators who claimed prosecutors discriminated against blacks.

Police separated participants in the "pro-majority" rally organized by the Learned, Miss.-based Nationalist Movement from a racially mixed group of about 100 counter-demonstrators outside the LaSalle Parish Courthouse. There was no violence and one arrest, of a counter-demonstrator.
