Demonstrations Planned for Holocaust Memorial Day

On Saturday, neo-Nazis from around Sweden will gather in Stockholm to protest the international day of commemoration for victims of the Holocaust.

Militant antifascists are rallying for a counter-demonstration and police are bracing themselves for the task of keeping the two groups apart.

Police in Stockholm told newspaper Metro that they will do everything to prevent a confrontation, protect the city and make it possible for the demonstrations with permits to take place. While the neo-Nazis have permission to march, by Thursday afternoon the antifascists were still without permits.

The last few years have seen an increase in clashes between the two groups with illegal strikes against each other becoming more frequent.
