Stockholm:  Around 15,000 people protested in Stockholm against racism  and a neo-Nazis assault on a similar, but smaller, demonstration last week, when 2 people were stabbed.

A group 30 neo-Nazis attacked an anti-racism rally in the city’s suburb of Karrtorp last weekend, throwing bottles and firecrackers at the demonstrators and stabbing two people.

Demonstrators gathered again in Karrtorp on Sunday, with organizers saying that around 16,000 came to protest the aggressive actions of the nationalists.

“It feels as though the square has been taken back. It shows that there are many of us who believe in democracy and nonviolence,” Jonas Sjostedt, Left party leader, told TT news agency.
