Outnumbering a planned Nazi demo called by the Keystone State Skinheads (KSS),  about 200 counter demonstrators managed to thwart a planned “Leif Erikson Day” celebration.  Antiracists marched up Lemon Hill in Fairmount Park to confront the neo-Nazis as they  marched down the hill to lay a wreath at the Viking statue on boathouse row.
