UK: Thousands join refugee solidarity marches

LONDON (AA): Thousands of people across the U.K. have attended a series of anti-racism marches to declare their support for refugees settling in the country.

The marches in London, Glasgow and Cardiff, organized by the Stand Up to Racism group, marched under the “Refugees Welcome Here” banner.

Campaigners estimated that as many as 15,000 people would attend the demonstration, which is being held for the third consecutive year to coincide with United Nations anti-racism day coming Monday.

The London march took demonstrators past the city’s central landmarks, including Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus towards a rally in Trafalgar Square.

A small group of 20 far-right protesters carrying anti-immigration banners were kept behind a police cordon during the rally to prevent clashes.
