Thousands took to the streets of Warsaw on Wednesday, to protest against the European Union on the 15th anniversary of Poland entering the bloc. Police removed dozens of anti-fascist counter demonstrators who tried to block the march.

Footage shows the heavy police presence at the march, as well as counter demonstrators being removed.

"We have common foreign policy, there is discussion about a common army, more and more laws are not organised and bills are not presented in Warsaw but in Brussels," said National Movement Party President Robert Winnicki, who organised the march. "We think that our traditional values: family, property, catholic values are threatened by very liberal European commissioners."

Supporters of the movement reportedly described Wednesday’s rally as a sovereignty march, which gathered an estimated 3,000 demonstrators.
