Residents unite against messages of hate

By Jackie Lupo

HASTINGS — When walkers in Hillside Woods discovered handbills near Sugar Pond last week bearing the message “Our Future Belongs to Us” and the name “Identity Evropa,” along with an emblem of a triangle divided in thirds, police were called. The five handbills were removed, but the message lingered from the white supremacist group that has been leafleting across the country.
