Newark Police Ban Nazi and Anti-nazi Meetings in the City

Download PDF for this date

Deputy Chief Inspector John Harris today announced the intention of the police department here to ban meetings of whatever nature which are sponsored by Nazi or anti-Nazi groups in this city.

The announcement follows a similar decree published yesterday by the officials of the Irvington police department. In Irvington recently a Nazi meeting terminated in fisticuffs, a miniature riot, arrests and injury to many persons.

The local branch of the American League Against War and Fascism did, however, receive permission to hold a parade Saturday.
