Around 800 participate in an anti-fascist demonstration against neo-Nazi support in the Schoeneweide district in Berlin. The march passed several alleged neo-Nazi locations, like shops and bars. Police arrested four participants.

800 anti-fascist activists participated on a demonstration against neo-nazi locations in Berlin at the district Schoneweide, which is an area in Berlin where many right wing extremists are active and got locations like bars and shops.

The demonstration past the pub "Zum Henker" on the Brueckenstraße, which is considered as a relevant meeting point of the right-wing extremist scene. A police spokesman said there had been a few scuffles. Bottles were also thrown on the bar. But the situation remained mostly calm. A bookshop runned by a neo-nazi was damaged.

A ban by the police passing through the Brueckenstraße had been repealed by the Administrative Court, a police spokesman said tonight. The organizers of the demonstration had successfully appealed against the condition.

The police were at the area with numerous officials in order to avoid clashes. Cause of the demo is the three-year anniversary of the neo-nazi pub "Zum Henker".
