More than 150 protest "KKK" graffiti in Maine

Article Date: Friday, November 28, 2008

HALLOWELL, Maine (AP) _ People in central Maine are speaking out against "KKK" graffiti that showed up along a popular walking and bicycling trail.

More than 150 people gathered Wednesday on the Kennebec River Rail Trail in Hallowell to speak out against the more than 20 red and black "KKK" markings — shorthand for the Ku Klux Klan white supremacist group — that were found along the trail last weekend.

The protest was organized after the Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence was overwhelmed by phone calls.

Steve Wessler, director of the center, said the markings are "messages of hate and terror."
