Far-right among 200,000 in Poland independence march
Poland’s Eurosceptic leaders marked a century of national independence as 200,000 people marched through the capital in a parade involving far-right groups and neo-fascist activists from Italy.
The march was a focus of debate about whether the ruling Law and Justice Party tacitly encourages groups with roots in the fascist and anti-Semitic movements. The party won power in 2015 and Poland has since become increasingly isolated in Europe amid accusations of a tilt towards authoritarian rule.
Some marchers in Warsaw chanted: “Away with the EU” but there was no sign of white supremacist banners visible at last year’s march.
Government officials walked at a distance from the main marchers, away from any overt displays of nationalism, and were kept separate by police.
