Warsaw nationalist march draws tens of thousands, by the BBC.

Tens of thousands of people joined a nationalist march in Warsaw on Saturday, organised to coincide with Poland’s independence day.

Marchers chanted religious slogans such as “God, honour, country” and some called out racist chants including “Pure Poland, white Poland”.

An “anti-fascist” counter-protest attracted about 2,000 people. Police estimated that 60,000 people took part in the main march. …

The nationalist marchers carried Polish flags and threw red smoke bombs. Pawel, 21, from the southern city of Rzeszow told AFP it was “important because religion is important in our country and we don’t want Islamisation, of Europe or especially Poland”
