Anti-fascists counter neo-Nazis’ march

Some 500 anti-fascists countered a rally by 200 neo-Nazi marchers in a Czech city.

The neo-Nazis marched for an hour Saturday in the center of Pilsen, with police separating the two groups.

The Pilsen city government had banned the march, which had been scheduled for Jan. 19 – one day after the 66th anniversary of the first transport of Jews from Pilsen to Nazi concentration camps.

A regional court ruled last week, however, that the ban violated a law guaranteeing the freedom of speech.
