Hundreds of pro-refugee protesters took to the streets of Freital, 10 kilometers southeast of Dresden, on Friday, to protest racist attacks on the town's refugee centers. Protesters marched through the town escorted by dozens of policemen and tight security measures, as far-right counter-protesters shadowed the march. A far-right counter-demonstration was called in a bid to face off against the anti-fascist protesters, but was later banned by local officials. The protests were separated by police vans following the march, and police intervened several times to avoid clashes between the rival groups of protesters.
