Results of Prague Neo-Nazi march

skinheads The capital city of Prague had gone through the biggest police maneuvers in the past seven years, since the IMF meeting in 2000.

Two hostile groups, anarchists and neo-nazis. The result? Dozens of injured, hundreds arrested, hundreds of confiscated weapons and police expenses worth 15 millions CZK (500 000€)

More than 1600 policemen detained 396 citizens in total, 96 of them from other countries. Eva Brozova, Czech Police speaker informed 200 individuals did some offense. Three persons are charged with an attack on a police officer.

In the moment they were in smaller groups, they found themselves encircled by the police and ‘secured’. Confiscated weapons include clubs, knives, tear gas pistols or petards.

There were few street fights, usually of small groups. Concerning the speaker of the Czech neo-nazis, Petr Kalinovsky, one would say he got what he deserved, as he was attacked at a site close to Rudolfinum and even when he fired two times at the (anarchist?) attackers by his tear gas gun, and he was beaten black and blue.

This Saturday, the neo-nazis were visibly outnumbered. Media informed of 400 of them moving in Prague. Mostly Czech, but also Slovak and German. 1000 anarchists arrived against them. Those skinheads who have somehow reached the center become a target for the anarchists groups. In the evening hours some anarchists, probably frustrated they haven’t found any neo-nazis, attacked police officers and were arrested.

The interior minister Ivan Langer announced the police managed the action excellently. Deputies of the neo-nazis want to sue the leader of the police action.
