Nuwaubians Protest in Macon
WMGT-TV, Georgia/June 14, 2007

On Thursday, members of the religious group, the United
Nuwaubian Nation of Moors held a demonstration at Macon City Hall.
On their agenda, two issues: to protest their leader, Malachi
York's imprisonment, and the firing of four of their members from
the Clark County Jail in Athens.
One member says they chose to demonstrate in Macon because it's
where York's trial began.
"We need to get the story out so that other people can realize
what is happening to us as Nuwaubians could happen to them as
well." - William York, Nuwaubian Nation
Malachi York is currently serving a life sentence in prison,
for molesting 14 boys and girls whose parents were members of the
More than 20 people attended today's protest, which comes on
very the same day that an Atlanta author unveiled a new book, he
says tells the true story of Malachi York and the Nuwaubian
Bill Osinski held a book signing at the Barnes & Noble on Tom
Hill Senior Boulevard.
Bibb County Sheriff's deputies were on-hand, just in case
members of the Nuwaubian group showed up.
They did not make an appearance at the store, but Osinki had
this to say, about their protest at city hall.
"At some point, they've got to get beyond their delusions. This
man has been convicted of perhaps the worst child molestation case
in United States history, and you know, to defend him at this
point is unconscionable." - Bill Osinski, Author
Osinki's book, "Ungodly," hit bookstore shelves today.
The author, who is also an investigative reporter for the
Atlanta Journal Constitution, began researching the Nuwaubian
group more than nine years ago.
