Germany Neo-Nazi March Stopped!

[Media Source*]

BERLIN (Reuters) - A neo-Nazi march in Berlin was stopped by thousands of anti-fascist demonstrators Sunday after a tense standoff that overshadowed Germany's ceremonies marking the end of World War II in Europe 60 years ago...

"With peaceful means, the public showed these Nazis who were trying to glorify the greatest genocide in history will never again have any role in Germany," said Juergen Trittin, a minister in Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's government.

About 3,300 neo Nazi marchers were preparing to march not only through the Brandenburg Gate (which symbolizes unity) but also past a new Holocaust memorial. The extremists were dressed in dark clothing and had shaved their heads. A police barricade was set up to separate the 3300 marchers from the 6,000 protestors who blocked the marching path, canceling the procession.

The day was suppose to mark the anniversary of the end of WWII and the defeat of the Nazi Party, but instead turned into a confrontation with Germany's ugly past revealing that remnants of Hitler's philosophy still remain. Fortunately the march was canceled, but the Neo-Nazi's on the other hand did not seem "pleased" with being silenced by the crowd.
"This was not a day of 'liberation' but a day of defeat for Germany and it's nothing to celebrate," said NPD leader Udo Voigt. "Almost every German has relatives expelled from the east or a grandfather who was killed. We're here to mourn the millions of Germans killed in the war," he told Reuters.

A picture of the event can be seen here, which shows anti-fascist protesters trying to break ranks in order to "express their feelings" towards the Neo-Nazi's. Perhaps the police should have let them--marches like these would become less popular if they did. Minds like these can join the ranks of Al Qaida as those who resisted freedom and embraced oppression and will have a "black mark" as far as history is concerned. Fortunately these minds are few in number and can be held back by all those who love liberty around the globe.
