National Socialists March In Sweden

Around 10 people were arrested following scuffles between police and left-wing Antifa counter-protesters, as members of the far-right Nordic Resistance Movement marched through Central Stockholm, Saturday.

Minor clashes erupted close to King’s Garden (Kungstradgarden) where several hundred right-wing demonstrators, mostly from Sweden but also Norway, were preparing to rally towards Mynttorget square in the Old town district.

As the right-wing activists were marching with a banner reading “Stop the alien invasion” as well as the movement’s green and white flags, several thousand counter-demonstrators tried to prevent them from crossing the bridge and later tried to break through police cordons to reach their opponents. The left-wing counter-protesters also threw snowballs and firecrackers at the police.
