‘Today on the Street, Tomorrow in Parliament’ is neo-Nazi Rallying Cry in Kaunas

Neo-Nazi marchers in Kaunas today, Lithuania’s February 16th Indendence Day celebration, carried a banner reading (in translation): ‘Today in the Street, Tomorrow in Parliament’. The reference was both to the general goal of the movement, and in reference to a neo-Nazi employed as an assistant to a prominent member of parliament (the Seimas), herself formerly the head of the antisemitic Genocide Center, who has announced his own candidacy in forthcoming municipal elections.

By apparent agreement with authorities, the marchers brandished swasticals rather than classical swastikas.
