Czech group: March is neo-Nazi front

A protest against the Iraq war in Prague’s Jewish Quarter is really a neo-Nazi march, a Czech group says.

The planned march by the Young National Democrats is really a front for the extreme right National Resistance, which got municipal approval for a demonstration on Nov. 10, the 69th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Tolerance and Civil Society group has told the Czech press.

The group said the march is being led by one of the country’s most active neo-Nazis.

The march organizers told city hall they expected some 150 participants. Counter-demonstrators in Prague for such events typically far outnumber nationals and extremists.
