Swindon's cenotaph was swamped with protestors on Saturday as 'Yellow Vest' pro-Brexit campaigners clashed with a coalition of anti-fascist pro-EU and union groups.
In total around 100 protestors gathered at the war monument. They were made up of 30 'Yellow Vest' pro-Brexit protestors and the rest anti-Brexit protestors who were squaring off against each other.
The right wing 'Yellow Vest' protestors, all of whom had adopted hi-viz tabards made famous by the socialist demonstrators in France who are calling for workers rights and a fairer tax system, were calling for Britain's immediate exit from the EU as well as an end to homelessness.
They were met by the larger group made up of a coalition of anti-fascist pro-EU and union groups made up of leavers and remainers but who were protesting against the anti-immigration rhetoric of the yellow vests as well as those who want the UK to stay in the EU and for the Government to stop adopting the right wing pro-Brexit stance.
To cope with the protests there was a high police presence on Saturday with certain roads closed off.
