BOSTON – Police Departments across the country and the Commonwealth announced neo-Nazi groups are organizing a national day of hate for Saturday, February 25.

Watchdog groups, like the Anti-Defamation League and law enforcement are on high alert, but said that there are no specific targets.

“We are on alert and in communication with our Federal and State partners,” said Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker to SOURCE on Saturday. “We have increased patrols, and have had conversations with those who are impacted with this threat.”

Online neo-Nazi organizers are “instructing likeminded individuals to drop banners, place stickers and flyers, or scrawl graffiti as a form of biased so-called action.”

The Anti-Defamation League said 2021 was the highest year on record for documented reports of harassment, vandalism and violence directed against the Jewish community. The watchdog group has tracked these incidents since 1979.
