Anarchists Shut Down Neo-Nazi Rally in Des Moines, Iowa

From Info Shop News:
More than sixty anarchists, antifascists, catholic workers, communists, and everyday people from Iowa City, IA; Des Moines, IA; Omaha, Nebraska; and elsewhere converged in Des Moines on Saturday, November 20 to protest a scheduled ¨White Pride Day¨ rally organized by the American National Socialist Party based in Chillicothe, Ohio. Although a few suspected white nationalists were seen driving around the perimeter of the Iowa state capitol, where the fascist rally was supposed to be held, none apparently had the guts to get out of their cars and risk a confrontation with the large mob of antifascists.
You can see the announcement and poster for the Nazi rally here.  As of this writing, I have yet to find any reports on this rally and counter-protest in the mainstream and corporate media.
