SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- At least two law enforcement officers were injured during a clash with members of the Occupy movement who were at the state Capitol to protest a rally by a pro-white group.
The clash erupted about 3 p.m. Monday as California Highway Patrol and Sacramento city police officers were escorting about 35 members of the South Africa Project to a parking garage following their protest outside the Capitol building.An Associated Press photographer says roughly 50 members of Occupy Oakland began throwing cans and bottles at the South Africa group and at the officers. The Occupy members then rushed the officers as people with the pro-whites group rushed into the parking garage.
The protest by South Africa Project began relatively calmly. At noon, members took up position on the Capitol's south steps for a three-hour protest of what they called "White Genocide in South Africa."
Their literature claims that as of December, more than 3,000 white farmers of European origin had been murdered in South Africa in racially motivated attacks.Meanwhile, a multiethnic group of about 100 protesters was separated from them by police officers on horses.
The South Africa Project protesters denied they are white supremacists. "For some reason, when a white person tries to stick up for an issue based on race, they're automatically labeled racist, neo-Nazi Klan members," said coordinator Michael Myers, an electrician from Oakland.

Occupy protesters, some wearing hoods or masks, said they came from the San Francisco Bay area to counter what they called a racist group affiliated with former Louisiana Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Some in the Occupy crowd also had shaved heads or mohawk haircuts and equally prominent tattoos, but a different message.
But David Duke endorses Occupy Wall Street, just like Nancy Pelosi:
They are all anti-American, anti-semitic and anti-Israel. David Duke on a video, accuses Jews of enslaving blacks not mozlems: no wonder the mozlems love him.
Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke has joined President Obama and the American Nazi Party in supporting the Occupy Wall Street protests.“I cheer the men and women on the streets condemning the international banks that hold America financially hostage. These Wall Street banks are not the product of free enterprise; they are the product of crime,” Duke said in a video supporting the protests. More here.
