Czech Republic: Yet another fiasco for the DSSS - 10 people, not 400, in Brno

About 10 people attended an election rally for the right-wing extremist Workers' Social Justice Party (Dělnická strana sociální spravedlnosti - DSSS) on the centrally-located náměstí Svobody in Brno today. Conveners of the rally had anticipated as many as 400 of its supporters to attend. 

Police did not have to intervene and the rally took place without any conflicts. DSSS leader Tomáš Vandas repeated his attacks against the EU during the rally.  

News server Novinky.cz reports that the assembly did clash with an event convened by the National Memory project (Paměti národa), which collects the stories of those who experienced important historical events of the 20th century. "We play the stories of those people from loudspeakers, and a gentleman came over and told us to turn everything off because they were holding a rally. We said we would not. The conflict situation was ultimately resolved by the police in a very decent manner, we backed down and turned off our broadcast for a half an hour," Mikuláš Kroupa of the National Memory project told the daily Právo.  

This is yet another recent debacle for DSSS leader Tomáš Vandas. The first was the 1 May march in Ústí nad Labem which was attended by no more than 200 supporters despite a powerful mobilization effort by neo-Nazi groups.
