New Orleans Protocol
The New Orleans Protocol (NOP) was signed in New Orleans, Louisiana, on May 29, 2004 David Duke, then recently released from prison, organized a weekend gathering of the euphemistically entitled "European Nationalists", or white nationalists, but commonly known as white supremacists. Following the death of William L. Pierce in 2002 the White supremacist movement had become splintered and divided. At the gathering Duke presented his unity proposal for peace within the movement and a better image to the outside world, to "mainstream our cause."
The NOP calls for "Zero tolerance for violence. Honourable and ethical behaviour in relations with other signatory groups. (In other words, no enemies on the racialist far-right.) Maintaining a high tone in our arguments and public presentations." Commentary by Paul Fromm clarified that violence in "self-defense" is permitted.
The signatories on that date were
- David Duke, European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO)
- Don Black, Stormfront
- Willis Carto, American Free Press
- Dr. Ed Fields , Truth at Last
- Sam G. Dickson , Council of Conservative Citizens
- Kevin Alfred Strom and David Pringle, National Alliance
- Paul Fromm, Canadian Association for Free Expression
- John Tyndall, not signing for the British National Party
