Anti-Jewish ‘Goyim Defense League’ (GDL) Leaflets Distributed in Northern California Neighborhoods

Police in Marin are investigating anti-Jewish messages disseminated in driveways Sunday similar to those strewn in many Bay Area cities for over a year.  

Several residents of Larkspur and Corte Madera woke up to find small, clear plastic bags in their driveways that contained leaflets with antisemitic and racist language, Central Marin Police said.  

By obtaining surveillance video from residences, police say they may have captured the suspect(s) and their vehicle.  

The advocacy organization fighting antisemitism – StopAntisemitism – has attributed the antisemitic flyers to the Goyim Defense League (GDL). The league travels the country distributing these hateful flyers targeted Jewish communities.

Similar flyers have been left in driveways in Danville, Novato, Concord, Berkeley, Palo Alto and other cities.  

Though the joint statement in Berkeley didn’t explicitly say what was in the messages, it noted that “identical” antisemitic “screeds” blaming the COVID pandemic on the Jewish people had been disseminated across the country.   

Central Marin Police are asking anyone who may have video footage from Saturday evening to Sunday morning to share it with them. Police would also like to hear from anyone who received similar material. To reach them, call (415) 927-5150.
