The Newcastle football team fans also attended the anti-PEGIDA demonstration.
Security forces were deployed in the region in order not to have clashes between the two groups of protesters. Police detained five PEGIDA supporters for attempting to cause commotion.The AFN released a statement via its official website, saying, "London Anti-Fascists oppose all forms of reactionary movements-from the streets to the state. We see PEGIDA UK as one manifestation of the unease in society caused by state divide and rule tactics, the stirring up racial and religious hatred in the media and the decline in living standards."
