The media was reporting a demonstration turned violent in Ljubljana, Slovenia on November 30, 2012. Turns out the violence had nothing to do with the protesters, who remained peaceful throughout.
Digital Journal reported on the demonstration against the centre-right wing government of prime minister Janez Janša in Ljubljana on Friday.
At the time, the media was spreading the news that the protest had turned violent, with protesters throwing Molotov cocktails and rocks at police.
A member of the Prisotnost Steje (Presence Counts) Occupy Ljubljana group contacted Digital Journal to advise that their protest had been entirely peaceful, with protesters handing flowers to the police, not Molotov cocktails.
The trouble began when agent provocateurs and Neo-Nazis got involved.
The video above shows the Slovene branch of the European Neo-Nazi movement Autonomous Nationalists of Slovenia trying to discredit the peaceful protesters by throwing explosives at the Slovenian police.
It is important to note that the demonstration by protesters against the government of prime minister Janez Janša remained peaceful throughout, as can be seen in the image below.
