A small group of people holding signs and posting banners held a sidewalk rally calling for white pride on Saturday, March 23, at the entrance to Keizer Station.

Frank Anderson of Scappose, who spoke for the group, said the purpose of the rally was to mark White Pride Worldwide Day.

“We’re not here opposing other people,” said Anderson. “We’re not trying to exclude anyone, we’re trying to get other people to be proudly white.”

He added that the group was against oppression as well as mass and illegal immigration.
