Racist and Anti-Facist March Stopped
A town south of Stockholm has brought in legal measures in order to stop 1000 demonstrators taking part in an annual clash between racist and left-wing marchers.
Stockholm’s police force initially gave permission to the three groups organising the marchers set to take place this Saturday.
The local council in Salem, however, have since appealed against the decision saying it is their responsibility to ensure the order and safety of their town and its people.
Local residents are also against the march saying that towns people are too scared to leave their homes.
The far right-wing march occurs every year in memory of a 17-year-old boy killed in the town in late 2000 and anti-facist groups carry out counter-protests.
