Stock­holm, Swe­den

The Week Middle East - - News -

Far-right on the march: Swedish neo-Nazis staged their big­gest ever march through the cen­tre of Stock­holm on Satur­day – hail­ing Don­ald Trump’s vic­tory in the US elec­tion as a sign that a “world rev­o­lu­tion was be­gin­ning”. About 600 mem­bers of the anti-Semitic, anti-im­mi­grant Nordic Re­sis­tance Move­ment (NMR) – founded in 1997 – marched from a park in the Swedish cap­i­tal to Mynt­tor­get, a square ad­ja­cent to Swe­den’s par­lia­ment build­ing. At least five peo­ple were arrested, and about 50 oth­ers were re­moved from the march, af­ter vi­o­lence broke out be­tween the neo-Nazis and anti-fas­cist pro­test­ers, who threw ob­jects in­clud­ing fire­works, ice and snow­balls at the NMR marchers.
