Germany: thousands of antifascists block Nazi demo in Dresden

More than 10,000 people gathered in Dresden to make sure that the march that the Nazis had called for the anniversary of the dreadful allied bombing of the city in 1945 could not take place. They succeeded.

Every year the Nazis try to use this war crime as a pretext to march through the Saxon city. In response the platform Dresden Nazi Frei (Dresden free of Nazis) calls for a counter-demo also every year. And every year they are more successful.

Yesterday, the few hundred Nazis that had arrived from all Germany to Dresden could not go far away from the train station. The only incidents happened between the police, which protected the Nazis, and some of the demonstrators.
