Security measures in place for rally against racism in Stratford
Barricades are being placed across the lawn and fences will be placed along the perimeter of Stratford Town Hall, where a rally against racism will take place Saturday.
Rally organizers are expecting hundreds to gather, and Mayor Jim Miron is giving them one hour to get out their message.
Several white supremacy groups have notified town leaders that they also plan on attending the rally. The mayor canceled the rally Thursday after concerns the white supremacy groups would take over. Stratford police are now stepping up security, and Mayor Miron says they will utilize officers from Bridgeport to help secure the expected crowds.
