USA: Neo-Nazis, racist KKK clash with opponents in California at demonstration, nine hospitalized

27.6.2016 11:32

After a demonstration by adherents of the extreme right in front of the Capitol of the state of California in Sacramento, nine people have been hospitalized, seven with stab wounds. The Associated Press reports that neo-Nazi parties clashed with their opponents.

Local police said none of the injuries were life-threatening. The demonstration was organized, according to The Los Angeles Times, by various neo-Nazi parties, including the racist Ku-Klux-Klan (KKK), which planned the event several weeks in advance.

According to The Los Angeles Times, opponents of the KKK planned their own counter-event and arrived yesterday at noon local time with posters reading "Many colors, one working class. Down with racism!"

Nine people were hospitalized with stab wounds after the brawl, none of which are serious, apparently. The local police chief told the press it was not immediately clear which camp the injured were from.
