Anti-fascists and right-wing extremists clash in Schwyz
Fights broke out at a demonstration in canton Schwyz over the weekend.
On Saturday hundreds gathered in the cantonal capital to protest against racism.
Marching under the banner of ‘Schwyz is Colourful’ the crowd was motivated after a group of local men walked the streets dressed as Ku Klux Klan members during the Fasnacht celebrations a few weeks ago.
The marchers included families and children.
But clashes broke out between anti-fascists and right-wing extremists. Police managed to separate the two groups and escorted many of the protestors, who had travelled to the demonstration, back to the train station.
