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 on Nov. 10, the 69th anniversary of Kristallnacht, is a front for the extreme right National Resistance, the Tolerance and Civil Society group told the Czech press. Municipal officials have approved the demonstration.

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

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