EUGENE, Ore. - University of Oregon Police observed a confrontation between apparent Neo-Nazis promoting a Holocaust denial film and members of the campus community on Thursday.
Officers did not engage the men, who parked a pickup truck emblazoned with a swastika in the heart of campus.
The truck was legally parked near Johnson Lane, between Johnson Hall and the Erb Memorial Union.
Some members of the Oregon campus community tried to debate the men, according to a photographer at the scene.
Others shouted for them to leave.
Other people stood between the groups in an apparent attempt to keep the peace.
Many people in the crowd applauded as they men drove away. Others raised their middle fingers.
Campus police said the men were acting within the legal bounds of free speech - and that one of the men played the bagpipes before leaving.
