ABSTRACT
The article reports that in spite of the ban on demonstrations, over 1,500 neo-Nazis of the National-Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) have taken part in smaller, spontaneous anti-G-8 protests in several German cities. Since the Iraq War, hostility to the G-8 and globalization has become a central theme of new Nazi ideology. For the NPD, the anti-globalization movement is to be understood as part of a "völkisch" uprising of the world's peoples against the rootless capitalism system.
