Orlando, Florida, U.S. - A planned neo-Nazi march was cut short despite the protection of hundreds of riot equipped law enforcement officers. The march, which was organized by the Minneapolis based National Socialist Movement, was not allowed to proceed as planned through Orlando neighborhoods after fist fights involving counter demonstrators broke out. CBS News blamed the violence on the anti-racist groups: Skinheads Against Racial Prejudices and the Southeastern Anarchist Network. At least 17 anti-fascists were arrested for charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and wearing masks.
