A bloody clash in Sacramento broke out after Neo-Nazi activists were met by opposition. Do you think that this summer is going to bring more events like this?
At least seven people were stabbed and rushed to the hospital after right-wing extremists holding a rally outside the California state Capitol building clshed with counter-protesters.
California Highway Patrol Officer George Granada said about 30 members of the Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) were gathering for a rally around noon Sunday when they were met by about 400 counter-protesters and a fight broke out.
Sacramento Fire Department spokesman Chris Harvey said emergency crews transported at least six people who were stabbed, some critically wounded, and that many other people had cuts, scrapes and bruises.
As people tried to leave the area, smaller fights broke out, Granada said. He said no arrests had been made as of Sunday afternoon.
He said the Capitol remained on lockdown three hours after the large fight broke out but that things had calmed down and only about 70 ‘anti-fascists’ remained in the area.
‘There was a large number of people carrying sticks and rushing to either get into the melee or see what was going on,’ Harvey said.
While it is not yet known which group the wounded belonged to, one neo-Nazi broadcasting the march online bragged that ‘they got one of ours but we got six of theirs’.
Emergency crews were called to the area at 11.45am and found victims strewn across the grounds outside of the Capitol building.

Will there continue to be clashes over the Presidential election? This new shock poll is putting Hillary 12 points ahead of Donald Trump:
Donald Trump is now trailing Hillary Clinton by 12 points in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, in a dramatic 14-point swing since mid-May.
Now just 39 percent of registered voters support Trump, while 51 percent support Clinton.
Six weeks ago, 46 percent liked Trump and 44 percent chose Clinton, giving the Republican billionaire the advantage for the first time in this particular survey.
But The Donald’s fortunes soon reversed, with now two-thirds of Americans saying that they believe Trump is biased against women, minorities and Muslims, with 64 percent – a new high – saying they believe the businessman is unqualified to serve as president.
Surveys from both NBC News and CBS aren’t nearly as bad, but also don’t show Trump much good news.
Today’s NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll has Clinton up over Trump – but by just five points.
She receives 46 percent of the vote to Trump’s 41 percent.

But Trump isn’t believing these numbers. Here’s what he had to say about it:
Donald Trump on Sunday dismissed a poll that shows rival Hillary Clinton leading him nationally by 12 points.
“The @ABC poll sample is heavy on Democrats. Very dishonest – why would they do that? Other polls good!” the presumptive Republican nominee tweeted.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Clinton with 51 percent support among likely voters, compared to Trump’s 39 percent.
The poll was conducted among a random national sample of 1,001 adults reached on cell phones and landlines, according to the Post.
Of those surveyed, 36 percent identify as Democratic, up 3 percent from the same poll conducted in May. Republicans accounted for 24 percent of those polled this month, down one percent from the May poll. Independents made up 33 percent of those surveyed.
