Adolf and Eva wannabes

Adolf and Eva wannabes

The skinhead was the most talkative of the Aryan Guard. There was a lot of macho strutting going on, with arguements of who can do what if the police weren’t present. He also was bragging about his (apparent) girfriend next to him. I can’t remeber the term he used for her, but it didn’t seem flattering.

The Aryan Guard is a neo-Nazi group based in Calgary. This is the 2009 version of its annual march held on the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racism, which it calls "White Pride Day". The Aryan Guard is a small group (maybe under a dozen), that’s normally bolstered by people from out of town for such events (for a total of maybe 60). A much larger group of several hundred countered them. Their group symbol is based on the celtic cross. This year, they largely (though not completely) avoided explicit references to their underlying Nazi beliefs. This year, they faced a much greater limitation on their movement from counter demonstrators. A number of physical altercations occurred between them and the anti-racist counter-demonstrators.
