About a hundred fascists were only allowed to march 300 meters from their gathering point as left-wingers, trade unions and ordinary Berliners joined forces to stop a neo-Nazi march. Clashes between the groups led to some injuries and arrests.

A few thousand Berliners stopped a march by the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany in its tracks, a correspondent from Russian news agency Itar-Tass reported from the scene.

About 100 neo-Nazis were only able to move about 300 meters from their original meeting point, the Jannowitzbrucke Bridge in the center of Berlin.

All possible routes off the bridge were blocked by a consortium of left-wingers, trade unionists, anti-fascist groups and ordinary Berliners.

As a result, the ultra-right radicals held a short meeting where they were and after about three hours began to disperse.

The police set up two cordons to separate the two groups, although there was some violence. Bottles and stones rained down on the neo-Nazis, which were hurled from the left-wing camp and the police had to intervene with batons and tear gas. A few people were arrested and there were a few injuries, including among the police.

The local press has dubbed the neo-Nazis’ march, “the shortest march in history.”

Outstanding! Was this article written by the New York Times and sent Germany for publication? Surely reads like one of their hack pieces!

If only you lived in Germany. It is so plainly obvious that these guys are far right. Ask anyone who lives here. You can choose to believe what Fox news wants you to think, or you can get the facts. These guys ARE far right, they ARE neo-nazis and they ARE fascist. Get your facts straight people. or not. I don't really care. It's your life and keep that head buried for all I care.

Hitler was a socialist and he hated capitalism. All evil comes from the left.

  


Be fore you repeat the propaganda talking points of the Media and Hollywood (both controlled and run by Jews) inform yourself by reading a little about Social Nationalism and WWII history.
