Ugly scenes as groups clash at Reclaim Australia rally

THERE have been chaotic scenes on Melbourne's streets as anti-racism protesters and nationalists clash in demonstrations.

Anti-Islamic groups Reclaim Australia and the United Patriots Front (UPF) held rallies in several cities and towns on Saturday.

Subsequent anti-racism groups launched counter rallies in response to the protests, holding banners saying "No Room for Racism".

There were violent scuffles in Melbourne, reminiscent of scenes when the two groups met during demonstrations earlier this year.

Bottles were thrown in the streets, protesters from both sides were punched and kicked as the rival groups clashed.

Some masked protesters attempted to barge through the police blockade but were met with force as officers resisted.

About 400 police members were on hand including officers mounted on horses who rammed through the crowds.

Officers used capsicum spray to subdue the crowds and protesters were seen on the ground having milk poured in their eyes.
