EDMONTON - Anti-racism protesters and white supremacists clashed briefly downtown Saturday afternoon before police formed a line between the two groups to keep them apart.
“I believe there was some pushing and shoving,” police spokesman Scott Pattison said outside police headquarters after the incident. “Police monitored the situation throughout and successfully got the two groups to go their own way afterwards.”
No one was injured or arrested, Pattison said.
The short, physical confrontation happened around 2 p.m. when the two groups faced off on the south side of Jasper Avenue, about a dozen white supremacists on the east side of 99th Street and anti-racism protesters on the west.
