Prague: neo-Nazis disrupt Velvet Revolution commemoration

Neo-Nazis attempted to disrupt the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Velvet Revolution in Prague Nov. 17, and clashed with police who tried to keep them from marching on the main parade. Some 300 right-wing extremists, many wearing masks, threw stones and bottles at the police, while chanting “Communists!” and “police state!” They also reportedly attacked three random people. There were 48 arrests. (Romea, Prague, Nov. 18)
