The News.PI reported:
About 7,000 people took part in a march led by far-right nationalist organisation the National-Radical Camp (ONR), which passed through several of Warsaw’s major thoroughfares on Saturday afternoon and evening.
Warsaw city authorities had previously forbidden the march, but the decision was ultimately overturned by the governor of the Mazovia province.
Marchers carried placards and banners with slogans such as ‘Poland for Poles’ and ‘Muslim refugees are a Trojan Horse into Europe’.
Meanwhile, about 1,000 gathered at the city’s Nicolaus Copernicus Statue for a demonstation under the slogan of ‘Refugees are welcome.’
