Арести и безредици при сблъсъци на националисти и антифашисти в Блекпул

Around 100 nationalists were met with opposition by anti-fascists in Blackpool on Saturday as they attempted to hold a “March for England” against alleged mass immigration, multiculturalism and radical Islam. At least four arrests were made during the march. The rally, organised by various far-right groups, was carried out along Blackpool promenade where protesters were closely followed by opposing anti-fascist demonstrators. The nationalists flung up Nazi salutes and sang chants, including “No surrender to the Taliban.” Both sides were met by a large police presence, including horses and dogs, that attempted to keep the two sides apart. The officers reportedly shut down the nationalists’ event after one hour.
