Impromptu March at Capitol Ends Without Incident

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Public Safety says an unscheduled march at the state capitol Saturday afternoon ended without incident when a group of protesters were asked to leave by the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

The Department says the group did not have a permit to protest on the premises.

The group was seen earlier in the day marching in other areas of the capital city. It’s currently unknown exactly who the group is or where they came from.

In a Twitter/X post Saturday evening, Governor Kristi Noem said, “Today, Nazis attempted to rally at the SD Capitol without a permit and were escorted away by Highway Patrol officers. Nazis are not welcome here in South Dakota. We stand on the shoulders of generations of Americans who have fought for the freedom of all- here and abroad. We stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We reject all hatred and Nazis. Full stop.”
