Prague neo-Nazi rally banned


A Czech higher court banned a neo-Nazi march planned for Prague’s Jewish Quarter.

The Young National Democrats march was scheduled for Nov. 10, the anniversary of Kristallnacht. The far-right group plans to march the same day on a different route in the Old Town.

The Supreme Administrative Court in Brno ruled Monday that the Young National Democrats had failed to meet the proper legal conditions when applying for its permit, overturning lower court rulings last month that stated the demonstration could not be stopped.

Three counter-demonstrations by Jewish and anti-racism groups are planned for Nov. 10, including a Shabbat celebration in front of the medieval Old-New Synagogue.
