A suspected far-right protester was carried to safety by a supporter of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement on Saturday as animosity was briefly set aside on a day of clashes in London between police and rival groups.

Pictures showed a white man, who the crowd identified as a far-right member, clutching his head as a black man carried him over his shoulders, flanked by police in riot gear.




The white man had been set upon on the steps leading to the Royal Festival Hall in central London and badly beaten, before other protesters stepped in to protect him, Reuters journalists at the scene said.

Earlier in the day there were skirmishes between anti-racism groups and far-right activists.

Several hundred demonstrators, mostly white men, attended a protest at Parliament Square organised by extremist groups including Britain First.

Football fans, veterans and far-right groups all vowed to ‘defend’ memorials from anti-racism protests this weekend after Winston Churchill’s statue in Parliament Square was defaced and a statue of slave trader Edward Colston was dragged down in Bristol last weekend.

BLM had cancelled a planned protest in London on Saturday amid fears it would be targeted by hate groups, while Sadiq Khan urged people to stay away, warning there was a threat of it becoming hijacked by groups intent on causing violence.

However, some protesters with Black Lives Matter placards gathered peacefully at Trafalgar Square to protest against racism and police brutality.

Later in the day, police struggled to keep anti-racism protesters and far-right groups apart, with images showing the two groups clashing at Waterloo station.

Many believe there are elites in position of power pitting the far right and black people against each other for their socialist governmental control of society and that there are valid reason to protest on both sides with the ability of unity. But not all may see it that way.
