Anti-migrant marches held in several European capitals

Around 1000 people marched in Bratislava on Saturday against taking any migrants into the country.

Banners read “No to Islamisation and EU dictatorship” as the crowd staged a march and then rally. Nearby another demonstration was calling for support for migrants.

The anti-migrant rally was organised by nationalist parties and groups, and also had participants from several other EU nations.

One Bratislava resident at the rival rally, just a couple of hundred metres away, commented that “walking through the town and shouting, ‘Heil!’ will not solve anything.”

In Poland it was similar story in the capital Warsaw, where a few thousand people were estimated to have taken part in an anti-migrant march, in part organised by
far-right groups.

Other marches were reported to have taken place in Portugal and Hungary.
