Nationalists, anti-facists march through Warsaw on Poland’s Independence Day
Thousands of nationalists marched through Warsaw on Saturday (November 11), waving flags and banners as they marked Poland’s Independence Day.
Starting near Dmowski Roundabout the group filed across Poniatowski Bridge as darkness fell, red flares lighting their procession.
Across the city a smaller counter protest was held by anti-facist groups who marched with banners reading “together against racism” and “rainbow is the new black”.
The November 11 celebration marks the day in 1918 when Poland regained its independence after having been carved up for 123 years by Russia, Prussia and Austria.
