USA: Neo-Nazi rally and counter-demo in Georgia sees 10 arrests, heavy police presence

Around 700 police officers were deployed as Antifa demonstrators contested a neo-Nazi rally in Newnan, Georgia on Saturday. Around 35 neo-Nazis gathered in Newnan's Green Street Park for the rally organised by the National Socialist Movement and held to celebrate Adolf Hitler's birthday. Antifa members staged a counter-demonstration on the streets leading to the park. Police formed a heavy... Еще perimeter around the rally, including a fence, two layers of barricades, and shoulder-to-shoulder riot police. Scuffles broke out between counter-demonstrators and police, with 10 counter-protesters reportedly being arrested, some allegedly for wearing masks. Last August clashes between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, left one person killed and 19 injured when a vehicle was driven into counter-protesters.
