Neo-nazis in London Celebrate Hitler’s Birthday; Jews Demonstrate

The neo-Nazi Greater Britain movement led by John Tyndall celebrated Hitler’s birthday this weekend while about 100 Jews demonstrated with placards.

The neo-Nazis drank toasts to Hitler’s memory at a bookshop in South London which serves as the group’s headquarters. About 20 members attended the ceremony as the demonstrators paraded with placards reading “Fascist Swine” and “Don’t Let It Happen Again.” When Tyndall emerged from the bookstore, one of the demonstrators rushed him, using an umbrella for a weapon but police intervened.
