UK: Far-right and Antifa protesters face off in Nottingham city centre

Anti-fascists protesters met with a bigger far-right rally in Nottingham town centre on Saturday.

The two opposite crowds filled Old Market Square as a large number of police officers were called in to keep the groups separated. Animosity could be seen between activists from the two sides.

Far-right protesters reportedly rallied in support of veterans and showed a big banner that read "children lives matter" while the Antifa rally displayed a BLM flag on the frontline and signs against neo-Nazis and racism.

"We understand what working-class people are looking for and what we are presented sometimes by the far-right is scapegoats. And that’s not necessary. So if we organise and get behind our unions we can achieve this thing and, again, it’s jobs, homes and better services," said a protester from the Socialist Party who joined the anti-fascism rally.

The protests disrupted the traffic and brought the city centre to a standstill in the middle of the afternoon, according to local reports.

Nottinghamshire Police said there had been no arrests and later thanked members of the public for protesting peacefully.
