The Canadian Jewish News April 20, 1995 From Coast to Coast Burdi convicted By Paul Lungen CJN Staff Reporter TORONTO - The assault conviction last week of a key Canadian neo-Nazi is expected to put a damper on white supremacy plans to recruit young people. The conviction will also prevent George Burdi, 24, from entering the United States. In recent years Burdi, a resident of Woodbridge, Ont., has produced hate recordings in Detroit under the Resistance Records label. He is also involved with _Resistance_ magazine. Last week in Ottawa, a seven-man, five-woman jury deliberated for almost five hours before finding Burdi guilty of kicking an anti-racist in the face during a wild brawl at the Canadian War Memorial on May 29, 1993. Alicia Reckzin, 22, suffered a broken nose in the attack. Burdi was in Ottawa with his band RaHoWa (Racial Holy War) to play a concert, which was broken up by anti-racists and the Ottawa police riot squad. Later, a group of white supremacists roamed through downtown Ottawa and Burdi and Heritage Front leader Wolfgang Droege led a charge into a group of anti-racists. Droege, who entered the court wearing leg shackles, testified that he, not Burdi, led the charge against the anti-racists. Burdi will be sentenced on May 11.
