Up to 120 people have been involved in a clash between National Front and anti-fascist demonstrators in Wellington yesterday.

The face off occurred after the National Front members went to the Cenotaph to commemorate what they called ‘National Flag Day’ only to find anti-fascist protesters already there, Radio New Zealand reported.

The right-wing group then went on to the Seddon Memorial in Parliament grounds.

Police formed a barricade between the groups and then broke up a scuffle which occurred when the anti-fascist protesters pursued National Front members to the railway station.

While no-one was arrested during the scuffle, two anti-fascist protesters were arrested for disorderly behaviour for throwing items.
