Neonazi demonstration in Plauen errupts in heavy clashes on Mayday

On Mayday approximately 700 neo-nazis rallied through Plauen for a ‘national-revolutionary working class’. At least 800 participated in a counter-demonstration. Counter-protesters were captured by police stopping the demonstration and leading to smaller clashes. Neonazis started simultaneously sending pyrotechnics into citizens protesting next to the route and police forced them to turn around. Water-cannons and teargas were used to stop the riot. The facist mob┬áthen rallied back to Upper-Plauen railroad station.
