On May 8, 2005 The Boston Globe reported, "about two dozen supporters of an Arkansas-based white supremacist organization rallied in the rain yesterday in a Somerville parking lot and prepared to stage a demonstration today outside a Holocaust memorial in downtown Boston, the group's chairman said. Asked how many members of White Revolution planned to attend the commemoration near Boston's Faneuil Hall, the group's chairman, Billy Roper, said: 'Based on the treatment we've received so far from the local police, if we have more than a couple dozen, that would be a success.' Roper said the group arrived yesterday at the Somerville Public Library but was barred from entering the building by local police."
