White Supremacy Flyers Distributed in Idaho Falls, Idaho
 
        (4/15/94) The Idaho Falls Post Register reports that a 
previously unknown local group distributed flyers seeking 
recruits for a white supremacy organization in Idaho Falls, ID.  
Area residents contacted police and the postmaster after fliers 
listing an Idaho Falls post office box address were distributed 
in residential parts of the city Wednesday night.
 
        Ttitled "A Challenge to White People," the flier listed a 
series of alleged grievances white people have against minorities 
including affirmative action, immigration policies, school 
integration, and support by foundations for minorities.  The 
flyer refers to the White Arayan Resistance, which previously has
been known to be active in Portland, OR.  The flyer called on     
people who agreed with its position to contact the group at an 
Idaho Falls post office box address.  No name or phone number was 
listed on the flyer.  
 
        Last Janaury hate group flyers were distributed in 
Pocatello, ID, some 50 miles to the south, on Martin Luther 
King's birthday observance. However, these do not appear to be 
the work of the same group.
