WATCH: Posters outing alleged neo-Nazis appear in NDG
Several posters appeared in N.D.G. recently showing the names and home addresses of alleged neo-Nazi's living in Montreal.
It's the latest in a serious of events that have caused tensions to rise in Montreal between anti-fascist activists and the individuals they are trying to publicly shame.
The posters claim to show a man who was spotted at the Charlottesville, Virginia white supremacist march last year and a high-profile neo-Nazi.
On one of the man's Facebook page he appears to mock the posters. The account contains posts devoted to far right and anti-immigrant views. It at one point also featured a video of Adolf Hitler, but it has since been removed.
When contacted by CTV Montreal, the group Spotted: Nazi said "We hope that his being exposed will create a situation in which he feels discouraged from organizing politically."
Protesters marched the last two weekends in Montreal, denouncing a man known as 'Zeiger,' reputed to be a top neo-Nazi organizer allegedly recruiting in Montreal and a man who was photographed waving a swastika flag from the roof of a condo building in Park Ex.
Park Ex resident Monir Hossain helped organize both protests.
"I believe if we don't take action, to the legal authority, it's definitely going to rise definitely. Today or tomorrow, it's going to rise and rise and rise city to city," he told CTV.
"These are organized people. Don't think these people are working alone. They have an organized group working all around. Maybe it's hidden, maybe it's underground, but they have plans, so we must say that police, even if they don't arrest them, they must work with those people."
Hossain said the goal is to have police to neo-Nazis seriously.
SPVM spokesperson Ian Lafreniere said police are keeping tabs on the men pictures in the posters.
As for the man that was seen waving the Nazi flag, Lafreniere said that is a little more complicated.
"Having a flag by itself, that's not criminal. But if you're using that to provoke or cause a commotion, it could be different laws that apply to that," he explained.
Lafreniere added that whoever put up the posters could end up being charged with inciting violence.
