SOUTH REGION/ 11 AUG 20/ Anti-Racism groups marched on Zinc, Arkansas. Separate fringe groups are rallying to the defense of organizers following event

SITREP: An organizer for Ozarks Hate Watch (OHW) has been targeted by KKK members regarding a recent march on a KKK leader in Zinc, Arkansas (near Harrison). Following this, he stepped away from managing OHW to form/participate in the Ozark Rifle Association which has become allied with the Socialist Rifle Association – Ozark Region. Additional groups (Joplin for Justice & Bridge the GAP NWA) traveled from regional cities to participate.

RECOMMENDATION: Continue to monitor groups traveling to KKK hotspots. Continue to avoid known conflict areas including; monuments, murals, historical sites, KKK compounds.
