Thousands of members from Germany's Far Right group 'Hooligans against Salafists' met outside Hannover's central train station Saturday and took to the streets dressed in black, covering their faces. The group, also known as HoGeSa are formed from ex-rivals of Germany's Bundesliga clubs.

Over 1,000 anti fascists also arrived in the city to stage a counter-demo. The police blocked off the two groups from each other in an attempt to avoid clashes, provoking an angry reaction from the anti-fascist protesters.

Large rallies were also planned for Berlin and Hamburg but were banned due to the group's reputation. The rally was the groups' first since October 26 in Cologne, when violence broke out with counter-demonstrators.
