Thou­sands clash in far right demo

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY ALAN SELBY

NAZI-salut­ing, far-right thugs clashed with po­lice at a rally yes­ter­day.

Vi­o­lence erupted as thou­sands of anti-fas­cists took on hun­dreds from the Demo­cratic Foot­ball Lads Al­liance near Down­ing Street yes­ter­day.

About 3,000 pro­test­ers de­scended on the cap­i­tal.

Some tried to break through po­lice lines as of­fi­cers in riot gear and horses sep­a­rated them from left-wingers.

Anti-fas­cist groups chanted “Nazi scum off our streets” and “whose streets, our streets” in re­sponse to the DFLA.

Counter-pro­test­ers, helped by trade unions, Stand Up To Racism and Unite Against Fas­cism, branded them Is­lam­o­pho­bic. Po­lice said they made one ar­rest.
