Burlesque Live!, Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts, Pie Social, and Neo-Nazis Fighting Anarchists Over the Weekend

Anarchists vs. Nazis 2010 Anarchists and neo-Nazis from the National Socialist Movement battled in the streets of Phoenix Saturday, with around 300 anarchists and other counter-protesters blocking the NSM's march to the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse. The Phoenix PD read the anarchists the riot act (literally), but the anarchists refused to budge, and the bulls whipped out the tear gas. Ultimately two counter-protesters were arrested for throwing rocks at the Nazis. Granted, it was hardly non-violent, and that's a real shame. But at least the neo-Nazis know they're not welcome...see photos
