People protest against extremists – level 1

People in Dresden, Germany blocked a meeting of a neo-Nazi group. It was on Wednesday evening. 13,000 people protested against neo-Nazism. They wanted to show that there is no place for neo-Nazism in Dresden. They wanted to show that they are against racism.

3,500 policemen came to Dresden too. They wanted to stop fights between protesters and the neo-Nazi group. There were no big problems but two policemen had to go hospital. And some people had to go a police station.

Interesting words: neo-Nazi (somebody who likes ideas of Adolf Hitler), racism (idea that people with some colour of skin are better than other people).
