Update 4/19/13: Since we first posted this, we have gotten 4 confirmations that the hotel asked the NSM to leave. If this is true, thank you to everyone for successfully shutting down their 2013 national conference!
The National Socialist Movement (NSM) planned to hold their annual conference and rally this year in Atlanta, GA. The conference portion was to take place at the same place they were staying at; the Wellesley Inn Hotel (1337 Virgina ave Atlanta, GA), booked under the “Richard Wight group”. In 2011, Anti- Racist Action showed up to their conference in Pemberton, NJ and a fight involving 20 plus people ensued. Several nazis in the NSM were hospitalized with antifa suffering only minor scratches. Now, for the second time in 3 years, ARA and other antifascist comrades found their meeting location and disrupted it.
After intercepting private conversations between NSM members, ARA put together a country wide phone jam involving many antifascist and radical organizations. At around 6pm the calls came in hard and folks raised their concern over the neo nazi conference taking place at the Wellesley Inn. Meanwhile, according to a posting on Atlanta indymedia, some anonymous ATL antifascists rushed the hotel smashing NSM South Carolina member Richard Wight’s car.
Taken from Atlanta indymedia:
On April 19th, Atlanta antifascists descended upon the Wellesley Inn Hotel, where the neo nazi group known as the National Socialist Movement was holding their annual conference. We smashed every window and a tire of their member Richard Wight’s car. We did this to disrupt their conference, avert their attention off of the conference, to hit them monetarily, and show them that there will always be consequences for fascist organizing.
-Fuck off nazi scum
At first, upon receiving the concerned calls, the hotel seemed concerned, but soon enough they made a pathetic attempt at denying the NSM’s presence.
One night earlier in Illinois:
Since the NSM’s former Illinois state contact Suzy Lenner (3144 Boyle Terrace, Apt 4B River Grove, IL 60171-1185 quit and became merely a supporter as a
direct result of antifa harassment, the NSM made it a goal to quietly build a strong and active Illinois unit. The NSM thought they were doing pretty well in their efforts, with Buddy Rumble being the lead coordinator from the outside.
The truth is however, that one of their younger members turned informant for antifa after being contacted weeks prior to the conference. The Hated and Proud Skins were to pick up our mole late Thursday night for the conference, but according to an email, were instead “ambushed by antifa, leaving their car unable to make it to the meeting”. Chris Rothe apparently was unable to make it to the meeting as well. This means, that not a single member of the Illinois NSM made it to their failed national conference.
They thought they could hide and get one over on antifa? Here’s all the goods on the Illinois NSM:

According to the Georgia State Capitol Events webpage, The neo-nazi organization National Socialist Movement (NSM) along with other racist white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan will be holding their 2013 National meeting & anti-immigration rally in Atlanta and it’s no coincidence that they are doing it on Hitler’s birthday. Although the meeting is being held in an undisclosed location, here is the info for the rally:
