BERLIN (AP) — More than 5,000 people followed the call by the governor of a northern German state on Saturday to join rallies against a far-right protest in Hannover.

Lower Saxony’s Stephan Weil had asked people to rally against a protest by the far-right NPD party, which is marching to intimidate journalists who have reported critically about the nationalist party.

“To say it loud and clear: far-right agitation against journalists ... and press freedom are an attack on our democracy,” Weil had tweeted earlier.

Hannover police had tried to ban the NPD from protesting, but a court decided late Friday that the far-right protest can go ahead.

1. A 50 to 1 ratio, or 2%. A pathetic turnout that the NPD will probably claim as a victory ...

but in my mind, it's clear who the real winners are, the anti-NPD protesters for standing up against these thugs and not being intimidated. Good for them!

2. Fascist, racist, homophobic, nationalistic RW BS has been encouraged and emboldened.

Got to be a common denominator and/or funding source.
