Anti-Bullying Rally to be Held in Greece

  • Text size: + -

Community activists plan to hold an anti-racism and bullying rally in the Town of Greece Thursday.

It's in response to a racist bullying video posted online that's resulted in a criminal charge against a teenager.

Nicholas Robare, 18, is charged with second degree Aggravated Harassment. Police say he posted the video on Alex Hare's Facebook page. The video includes racial slurs and threats against Hare.

It shows Robare and two other teens burning a hoodie, which Hare says once belonged to a friend of his who was killed.

The rally begins at 4 p.m. at Barnard Park in Greece.
