People protest against extremists – level 2

People protest against extremists – level 2

21-02-2013 06:00

People in Dresden, Germany formed a human chain to block a neo-Nazi meeting on Wednesday evening. More than 13,000 people took part in a protest against neo-Nazism.

They wanted to show that there's no place for extremists in Dresden. They wanted to show that they are against racism.

3,500 police from across Germany were called to Dresden to make sure that there wouldn’t be any fights with neo-Nazi groups. There were no big problems but two policemen were injured and several people were arrested.

Interesting words: chain (series of rings which are joined together in a line), arrested (taken to a police station).
