Protesters took to the street in Bratislava to speak out against refugees and the EU, with an antifa counter protest taking place nearby, Saturday.

Right-wing protesters marched through the city centre waving Slovakian flags, holding banners and chanting slogans against the arrival of refugees in Europe. One protester, referring to the recent British vote to exit the EU, asked the crowd “Where is the democracy? In Britain there is democracy. There was a referendum. There people decided and common sense won.”

In response to the right-wing rally, hundreds of antifa activists marched nearby to show their opposition to the demo. Large numbers of police officers were deployed in order to avoid confrontations.
