A neo-Nazi group and Occupy Oakland protesters clashed during an altercation outside the the state Capitol in Sacramento that left two California Highway Patrol officers injured.

Rocks and paint balls were thrown during the protest, and three people were arrested.

A group of self-proclaimed white supremacists organized a nationwide protest Monday in an effort they call the "South Africa Project.” According to the project’s website, they want to stop the “genocide of whites” in South Africa.

A group of Occupy protesters then started a counter-demonstration, according to Fox 40.

Extra CHP and Sacramento police officers were called in to separate the two groups.
