SCRIPT
Red flares and Polish flags were spotted across Warsaw on Monday, as thousands of Poles, including far-right groups, marched for Independence Day.
Some participants were seen with 'White Pride Worldwide' Celtic cross flags and a Christian cross.
During the march, a Metropol Hotel worker was seen removing a pro-LGBT banner hung from a balcony.
Officials report that the number of participants amounted to 47,000 while a spokesperson for the Independence March Association counted 150,000 participants who marched on what marks the 101st anniversary of Poland's independence, set free in 1918, after more than a century of partitions at the hands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Prussia (later Germany) and Russia.
