Mayor warns of dangers from extreme right
Earlier Saturday, Mainz Mayor Michael Ebling led a gathering of some counter protesters at the city’s main railway station and used a speech to denounce the planned Nazi meeting.
“They should take their brown backpacks, pack them up and start their journeys back home,” Ebling said.
He also warned against underestimating the danger from the extreme right.
The Interior Ministry of the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate said the group was “obviously neo-Nazi.”
According to police, about 3,000 people — made up of church groups, labor unions and antiglobalization activists — helped to push back the extreme-right march through the western city of Mainz.
About 50 members of the hard-right New Strong Party (NSP) had gathered for a protest, around half of the number the party said would show up.
NSP members shouted such slogans as “Nazi city Mainz” and “Revolution now” before being prevented from moving forward, police said.
Clashes then erupted between officers and NSP members, and police said they responded with pepper spray.
The neo-Nazi group then relocated to another part of the city, according to the EPD news agency.
