A man was stabbed after around 20 ‘Polish neo-Nazis’ attacked people enjoying a free music festival in north London on Saturday.
At around 21:10, hooligans began to throw rocks, bottles, and flares at people who were attending the family-friendly Music Day festival in Markfield Park.
One female police officer was at the scene when the violence broke out and attempted to calm the situation, but the attackers, believed to be from the far-right Polish Zjednoczeni Emigranci Londyn (Emigrants United London), continued to hurls missiles and abuse.
Haringey Green Party described the events in a statement:
“Taking the peaceful community event by surprise, ZE launched an unprovoked attack, hurling verbal abuse at locals, intimidating the children and families that were present, before turning to physical violence.”
A 24-year-old Polish man was stabbed during the attack, but police say his condition is not believed to be serious.
Police arrested one 22-year-old Polish man for racially aggravated common assault, religiously aggravated common assault and common assault and a second Polish man of the same age for racially aggravated common assault.
