Hundreds of neo-Nazis who descended upon a German town for a far-right music festival were prevented from drinking alcohol once there thanks to a court-imposed banning order and the actions of angry local residents.

The Schild und Schwert Festival [Shield and Sword Festival] took place over the weekend in the town of Ostritz in Saxony. Ahead of the event, a court in Dresden, east Germany, imposed a ban on the sale of alcohol and possession of alcohol in order to prevent violence erupting, Deutsche Welle reported.

On Friday [June 21], the day the festival began, Saxony Police revealed that they had confiscated Around 4,200 liters (1,109 gallons) of beer from the white supremacists attending the event, with a further 200 liters also seized on the Saturday. The force continually tweeted images of their officers seizing alcohol during the festival.

Predicting that some neo-Nazis would attempt to purchase more alcohol once they were at Ostritz, local residents took it upon themselves to stock up on hundreds of crates of beer from a local store.

"The plan was devised a week in advance. We wanted to dry the Nazis out," Ostritz activist, Georg Salditt, told the Bild newspaper (via BBC). "We thought, if an alcohol ban is coming, we'll empty the shelves at the Penny [supermarket]."

On the same weekend as the music festival were two counter-protests in the town, as well as a Peace Festival commemorating the 100th anniversary of the local soccer team.

Michael Kretschmer, Saxony's state premier, praised the initiative of the locals and the demonstrations against the neo-Nazis. "I am very impressed with how in such a small town…the citizens stand up to make it clear that right-wing extremists are not wanted here," Kretschmer told the DPA news agency.

Good. If the best way to save the climate is via the wallet, so be it.
