Anti-fascists and Far-right Protesters Clash with Police in Bristol

London, June 6 (RHC)-- Hundreds of protesters have held demonstrations in Bristol, Britain to campaign for and against immigration, with police officers in riot gear and riding on horses in the streets.

The protests held on Saturday resulted in police clashing with far-right protesters and anti-fascists in the city center.  Protesters from groups including the English Defense League and the "South West Infidels" left a pub on Hotwell Road.

Nearly 400 people from the anti-fascist side met near Queens Square with various rallies from unions and their speakers.  The demonstrators represented charities, refugee support organizations, anti-racism groups and unions.

The anti-fascist demonstrators were the first to hold protests at around midday before the far-right groups started their own protests about an hour later.
