MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Thousands of right-wing protesters took to the streets of Slovakia's capital Bratislava on Saturday to protest the inflow of migrants from Africa and the Middle East.
Crowds marching in downtown Bratislava could be seen waving banners that read "Slovakia is not Africa," according to a video posted Saturday on the Netherland’s nie.nl website.
Protesters chanted "Slovakia for Slovaks" and threw objects like beer bottles at a counter-rally. At least once police officer was hurt in the action.
The rally was reportedly organized by several nationalist groups and political parties, including "People’s Party-Our Slovakia."
