White supremacists to rally at City Hall

LOS ANGELES Civil rights groups are calling for Los Angeles Mayor /*Antonio Villaraigosa*/ to revoke a permit allowing the demonstration Saturday.

Danielle Heck, a spokeswoman for a coalition of groups opposing the /*National Socialist Movement*/ gathering, says they "don't think there should be freedom of speech for hate groups." But, the white supremacist group disagrees.

Jeffrey Russell Hall, of the National Socialist Movement, says "They obviously only feel that the First Amendment should apply to people that they happen to agree with." Hall said he expects about 100 participants at the "Reclaim The Southwest!" event. Heck says he expects thousands of counter-protesters to show up.
