Anti-hate messages

Steve Gillespie / Daily Press
A small group holds up anti-hate signs to passing motorists at the intersection of Highways 49 and 412 on Saturday in Paragould. Some of the participants were members of the Greene County Democratic Central Committee, including Glenda Huffine, committee chairperson. She said the demonstration was for community awareness to show that people in Greene County do not identify with hate, following last weekend's violent "Free Speech Rally" that included white supremacists groups in Charlottesville, Virginia. Others holding signs Saturday included local residents John and Judy Gibson, and Oleta Birondo and Stella Dunavin, both of Monette. Messages on signs included: "No KKK, No (Swastika symbol representing Nazis), No Hate"; "Love Thy Neighbor"; and "Jesus loves you, red, yellow, black, white, all are precious."
