BOZEMAN – Eight white-supremacists wore bandanas to mask their faces while protesting earlier this week at the Gallatin County Courthouse in Bozeman.
They may belong to a group calling itself the Creativity Movement, whose members have declined to release their identities to media outlets in past demonstrations in Billings and Kalispell.
Travis McAdam, executive director of the Montana Human Rights Network, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that anonymity helps groups like this intimidate a community.
James Logsdon, a Chicago-area resident who described himself as a reverend with the group, said members don’t want to reveal their identities because they fear law enforcement will target them.
In Sunday’s demonstration, the men told a reporter they were there to fight for their race.
