Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An unusual story in that certainty of facts representing so-called antifa modus operandi elsewhere may imply international organization. To what end?

Police: Neo-Nazi demo and anti-fascist counter-protest in Tampere restless - Investigation opened

Police first called the demos peaceful, but an investigation of violent activities in the counter-protest is to be opened.
The protests were organised by the Nordic Resistance Movement and the opposing group, called "Tampere Without Nazis". The counter-protesters numbered some 800 people according to police, an estimated four times more than the neo-Nazi rally.
Counter-demonstrators detonated at least three smoke bombs during the demonstration, Yle reports. Counter-demonstrators also shortly interfered with train traffic by walking on the tracks for about half an hour. One demonstrator was taken into custody on suspicion of assault, one was detained on grounds of endangerment and two more were apprehended in order to prevent escalation. All those detained were marching in protest to the neo-Nazi gathering.

YLE is a state organ. Counterfactual reporting, if any, invited.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
