This video from Scotland says about itself:

Hundreds of people turned out to protest a “White Pride” demonstration staged by the far-right National Front group in Edinburgh, Saturday.

The counter protesters carried banners with slogans like “Scotland says nae to Nazis” and chanted “Nazi Scum” as they marched through central Edinburgh.

Unite Against Fascism (UAF) who organised the counter protest said “We won’t stand for their racism, their Islamophobia, their scapegoating of migrants and refugees.”

The White Pride demonstration was scheduled to coincide with the Sikh religious festival of Nagar Kirtan in city which involves a procession and traditional display of martial arts and music.

Edinburgh anti-fascists drown out neonazi noise

Monday 27th March 2017

OVER 400 anti-fascists faced down a pathetic motley crew of 29 neonazi thugs in Edinburgh on Saturday.

The Scottish Defence League and the National Front staged a “white pride” march in the city.

Many wore balaclavas or masks to hide their identity. They were able to march only with heavy police protection.

The 400 counter-protesters carried placards stating: “Nae Nazis, Refugees Welcome here,” and the simple message to the racists: “F… Off,” while chanting: “Master race — ha ha ha!”

Unite Against Fascism organised the counter-demonstration, which was fenced off from the white pride marchers by metal barriers. There were sieg heil salutes from the pitifully small band of right-wing extremists.

UAF Scotland’s Margaret Woods said: “We are delighted at today’s brilliant turnout for the UAF demonstration against the nazi National Front.

“There is no place in our society for fascists and we will always oppose any attempts they make to assemble or march.”
