A group of Nazi thugs have been chased out of Glasgow after violent clashes at an anti-Muslim march in the city-centre.
Around 100 white supremacists and Islamophobes turned up at the demo organised by far-right nationalist group the Scottish Defence League who were hopeful of cashing in on the sudden rise in support for new ‘alt-right’ cult-hero Tommy Robinson that has seen thousands march in the streets of England in the name of ‘free speech’.
But instead they were met by around 1000 anti-fascists, and ordinary people going about their business, who literally chased the nazis down the street after a string of violent clashes.
Earlier in the day the group of (mostly) bald men were seen shouting abuse at ethnic minorities and anyone who looked foreign after congregating in a Glasgow pub near Central Station.
A group of young men then aggressively approached the nazis after they were seen bullying a Muslim woman in a head-dress with two children.
Hundreds of anti-fascists then forced the demo back before coming out on top after several violent clashes.
Both sides then clashed with police after an apparent smoke-bomb was thrown at a police van.
A chunk of the far-right group were then ‘kettled’ by officers after being chased down a lane as chaos brought Glasgow’s streets to a standstill.
Fuck the SDL and every hoody wearing snivelling wretch that follows them. Scum, talking about British values but making Nazi salutes and carrying white supremacist flags. Confused tae fuck the lot of them. Not welcome in my city Glasgow.

100's of anti-fascists in Glasgow today opposing & outnumbering the nazi SDL 8 to 1. 58 nazis were surrounded & harrassed for half an hour and then left demoralised. #NaeNazis #NotoIslamophobia https://t.co/P3QaHVIK6N pic.twitter.com/g3jU6DtOsu

SDL v anti fascist protest in glasgow today, would have been a fun spectator sport if I wasn't working. Presumably just a Rangers v Celtic pre season friendly

Unbeknownst to us, there had been an SDL rally in Glasgow that day, and this particular pub was either the only bar they were allowed into, or simply the one in which they had chosen to quench their thirst after a long day of shouting at ethnic minorities
