May Day neo-Nazi Parade in Germany

German neo-Nazi groups are planning demonstrations in different parts of Germany on the 1st of May 2012. In response, the left party, Die Linke, and anti-fascist groups are organizing counter-protest demonstrations all over the country to interfere with the parade of neo-Nazis.(1)

The neo-Nazis' rally is supported by the German far-right nationalist party, NPD (National Democratic Party of Germany – The People's Union (German: Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands – Die Volksunion)).

The Nazi March planned in Dortmund  is cancelled by the local leader of the Nazi scene. They have not done it voluntarily. They were forced to back out facing the broad opposition from the left-democratic parties and youth organizations and the anti-fascist alliance. (2)

(2) (in German) Nazis wollen nicht in Dortmund ‚Mai-Feiern‘, http://dortmundquer.blogsport.de/2012/03/12/nazis-wollen-nicht-in-dortmund-mai-feiern/ - Congratulations to the Dortmund left-wings and antifascists!

Notes: We wonder if the Hungarian neo-Nazis want to parade in Hungary on May Day. If so, surely they will not face any difficulty in spite of they are illegal under the Hungarian law containing an international agreement (Paris Peace Treaty 1947)
