Central London served as the setting for two opposing protests on Saturday, with police trying to keep them apart. And for good reason… as the knock-out punch in this video demonstrates.
Right-wing groups gathered around the (now boxed-up for his protection) statue of Winston Churchill, and down the road, Black Lives Matter demonstrators congregated. The police spent the day trying to keep BLMers and right-wing ‘statue protectors’ as far away from each other as possible. Not altogether successfully, as scuffles like this took place around Westminster.

Right-wing nationalists of the Identitarian Movement held a rally in Vienna on May 17. Organizing themselves across social media, members of factions across Europe flooded in from France, Belgium, Italy, and Switzerland to join the Austrian faction to demonstrate against the EU.
To combat the protest, an anti-fascist group known as Offense Against the Right also gathered in the Austrian capital. As crowds became increasingly angry, police moved in to arrest protesters and separate the two opposing factions. VICE News was there to witness the clash of Europe’s new generation of extreme political movements.
