About 50 residents of Louny protested today against neo-Nazis from the Workers’ Party who are holding a regional conference in the town. News server Dení reports that approximately 30 members or sympathizers of the party connected to the neo-Nazi movement are attending the conference.

About 50 local opponents of the party gathered in front of the Na široké restaurant today. Dení reports they unfurled a banner reading “Stop All Forms of Fascism!”

This evening a concert by the neo-Nazi band Ortel, which is supported by the neo-Nazi organization National Resistance, is scheduled to take place at the restaurant. The Dynamit band is also scheduled to play.

"We are preparing security measures corresponding to the information available to us about Workers’ Party events,” Jaromíra Střelcová, spokesperson for the Louny Police, said prior to the start of the event. She was not willing to comment on the number of officers deployed to monitor it.
