Lithuania for Lithuanians only: Nationalists hold anti refugee, pro Nazi rally in Kaunas

Around 300 anti-refugee activists and nationalists marched through the city of Kaunas, Tuesday, marking Lithuanian Independence Day. Participants marched through the city under the slogan “Lithuania for Lithuanians only,” holding Lithuanian national flags, torches and banners picturing political and military leaders, and the message “We know our nation’s heroes.”

The nationalist march in Kaunas is one of several such events planned in the coming weeks in all three Baltic states — Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia — where many regard Nazi collaborators as patriots because they fought against Russian occupation.
