Hundreds demonstrate at right-wing AfD conference in Germany

Approximately 1000 demonstrators marched in the Saxony town of Riesa in Germany on Saturday to protest against the right-wing political party AfD which is holding its national conference in the town.

The largely peaceful demonstration was interspersed with scuffles with the police and right-wing supporters.

At least two arrests were made, according to the filmer of this video.

Among other issues, the Alternative für Deutschland party will decide on its European election programme and complete its candidate list for the European elections.

Riesa has many years of experience in dealing with neo-Nazi and right-wing activists. Since 2000, the NPD-Verlag Deutsche Stimme and the state office of the NPD have their headquarters there.
