Ku Klux Klan (KKK) moving rally back to Nahunta
— The Florida-Times Union reports:

— “They weren’t invited, haven’t been welcomed publicly and have no permit to use any parks, but Ku Klux Klan members plan to march in Nahunta nonetheless.”
— “The Knight Riders, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is back to its original plans and will hold a rally from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, in Nahunta.”
— “The city is still refusing, however, to let the group rally in the City Hall parking lot.”

— “Now it’s back to Nahunta, but the meeting is scheduled for a public street, city officials said Thursday.”
— “Nahunta plans to close U.S. 301, the city’s main north-south thoroughfare, between U.S. 82 and a point about three blocks north, City Clerk Angie Wirth said.”
